HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

Tr. thirteenth and fourteenth centuries witnessed a great effort to 
improve the education given at Oxford, which had hitherto been largely 
in the hands of the monks and friars. The feeling against them 
had been growing for some rime, and that for many reasons i ; Roger 
Bacon says they withstood the progress of true knowledge. Hence 
Walter de Nerton, Chancellor of England and bishop of Rochester, 
founded Ierton College x264-74, to train students for the service 
of God in church and state. Was he incited to it by Robert de 
Sorbonne having just founded hls college at Paris to educate poor 
secular students of theology ? No 'religious' person, i.e. monk or 
friar, was admitted by Nerton. His aire was to establish 'a con- 
stant succession of scholars devoted to the pursuits of literature,' 
'bound to study arts or philosophy, theology or canon law, or 
even civil law'; the students in canon law however were limited 
to four or rive. To remedy the prevailing ignorance of grammar, 
which Roger Bacon so emphatically laments, one of the fellows 
was to devote himself to the study. He was to be provided with 
the necessary books, and regularly instruct the younger students, 
while more advanced scholars were fo have the benefit of his 
assistance when occasion might require. English as well as Latin 
entered into his province of instruction. As the learned professions 
then practically belonged to the ranks of the clergy, most lawyers, 
doctors, &c. being in the minor orders, the clerical obligation at 
Nerton, as far as it existed, was hOt at all a narrow limitation- in 
fact it did not exclude any of those professions that possess a

curriculum at either Oxford or Cambridge in the present day. More- 
over, as the Quadrivium included arithmefic, geometry, astronomy and 
music, the system implied a s'ider idea of culture than the modern 
course which, unfil lately, was almost limited to c]assics, and even to 
a very few classical authors. The statures of ]3alliol, University, 
Oriel, and Peterhouse (the ear]iest college at Cambridge) ail borrowed 
more or less from those of Merton; just as later coileges at Oxford 
and Cambridge copied those of New College. By the statures of 
Exeter, the fourth co]lege in order of foundafion, only one fellow was 
required to be in orders. In the earlier Colleges hot even the Head 
was required to be in orders of any kind, nor were students ordered 
to go to church or chapel except on Sundays and holidays. It is clear 
that the education of the laity was now thought to be as important 
as that of the clerg-y. The coileges were, legally spea-ldng, la)t 
corporations 1, and the religious services devolved on chaplains. 
All students had been of course hitherto ' Unattached,' and discipline 
was hOt much enforced. The creation of Halls, i.e. lodging-houses 
let out by the owner to a group of students (artists or lests, Welsh or 
Irish, &e.), each under a Principal, had been a first attempt to secure 
discipline, but it had not been very successful. They became impor- 
tant however in I42O hen Unattached students were abolished, and 
every scholar or scholar's servant was obliged to lire in a hall under 
a rcsponsible Principal. The Masters, Bachelors, and students elected 
thcir own Principal*, i. e. consented to the transfer of the house by the 
landlord from one Principal to another. A student might remove 
from hall to hall at pleasure, untfl the stature passed between i533 
and 1547 ; and even then they might do so on just cause, or on the 
death or cession of the Principal; their free choiee of a Principal 
tended to keep them in the hall. ]ïach Principal had to give 
security to the University for the pa)anent of dues. The creation of 
a College, a corporate body, for poor students, under adequate disci- 
pline, was a step in advance ; and as Merton College soon acquired 
influence in the University, Stapeldon and Wykeham were led to follow 
the example. The improvement in discipline is shown by the special

Balliol, Exeter, Oriel and Queen's--from the general rustication which 
followed the sanguinary riot on S. Scholastica's day io Feb. i35 ]. 
A matriculation oath was now imposed on students that they should 
keep the peace. 
Merton, Stapeldon, and Wykeham (like Chicheley, Warham, Fox, 
and Wolsey, in later rimes) were statesmen as well as bishops. The 
Kings then paid their officiais, and clerks in chancery, by church. 
appointments, the only means at their disposal; this had one good 
result, of securing large-minded men for the Episcopate. 
In 1314 Walter de Stapeldon, bishop of Exeter, founded Stapeldon 
hall for scholars from Devon and Cornwall; but the ground in and 
near Hart hall, which he bought for this purpose, not proving large 
enough, he removed the students next year to S. Stephen's hall, and 
gave them the rent of Hart hall, about £z a year, that their rooms 
might be rent-free and kept in repair. Their new abode was at first 
also called Stapeldon hall, but was soon known as Exeter College 1. 
Stapeldon*- had taught Canon law at Oxford, and at the time of his 
election to Exeter 13 Nov. i3o 7 was precentor of the cathedral, 
rector of Aveton Gifford, and chaplain to Clement V. He was 
employed on service in France, before and after he became bishop ; 
sent thither by Edward 1 6 June , 306 ; Edward II sent him to Gascony 
in June 3io; on 6 Nov. i3iz he was ordered to defend the King's 
cause about Aquitaine before the Parlement of Paris, and again 8 Feb.

ing of his cathedral. The Fabric Rolls show that he was a benefactor 
to the amount of £i,8oo, an immense sure in those days. 
t-le soon obtained high place under Edward II, was a collector 
of the Tenth imposed on the clergy in I318 (Close Rolls ii. 55I, 555, 
56i); Treasurer 18 Feb. 13._. and again 9 Iay i322, after an interval 
ofrest granted at his own request . In I324 he held Cornwall against 
the chance of a French invasion ; he accompanied young Edward to 
France 9 Sep. I325 when the prince went to do homage for Guienne, 
and probably saw enough to convince him that Queen Isabella was 
plotting against her husband. He had remonstrated strongly with the 
King about the Despensers, but whert the revolution broke out the 
bishop was left by Edward, z Oct. 1326, in charge of London, and was 
murdered in Cheapside 5 Oct. i326. ' The bishop of Exeter, riding 
towards his inn in Eldedeanes-lane [Warwick Lane] for dinner, en- 
countered the mob and, hearing them shout "Traitor," rode rapidly to 
S. Paul's for anctuary, but was unhorsed and taken to Cheapside, stript 
and beheaded. William Walle, and John Padyngton his steward, met 
with the saine fate. About the hour of vespers the same day the 
choir of S. Paul's took up the headless body of the prelate and 
conveyed it to S. Paul's but, on being informed that he died under 
sentence, the body was brought to S. Clement's beyond the Temple, 
but was ejected ; so that the naked corpse, with a rag given by the 
charity of a woman, was laid on a spot called ' Le Lawles Chirche' 
and, without any grave, lay there with those of his two esquires,

His remains were buried in S. Clements Danes, but transferred to 
Exeter cathedral 28 Mch i3x 7. The present epitaph on his monu- 
ment there was composed by John Hoker in 1568, and put up at the 
expense of ]3ishop Alley ; it has been repaired by the College 1. His 
house, Exeter Inn, near Temple Bar, was sacked by the mob, his 
books--including his 'libri pontificales'--destroyed. His Register 
at Exeter ends 15 June I325; that of his last sixteen months was 
probably destroyed in London. We might perhaps have found in it 
some account of his benefactions to his new foundation at Oxford. 
He also left funds to establish in S. John's Hospital at Exeter 
a grammar school to prepare boys for Oxford, and another at 
Ashburton 2. I-Ils inventory shows that he possessed books valued 
at 2ot ios 6d, which treated chiefly on Scripture and Canon law, 
with a few historical works such as the Letters of Frederic II and 
Peter de Vineis. He had previously given to the Cathedral Library 
a Calholicon, beginning with the words Temporum summa, valued at 
£ 5, and the Chronicles of Westminster De geais AnKlorum va|ued 
at £ 1 6s 8d.

x Reg. 23 Jan. I734 a sure of f7 2s was added to xhat had been given before 
for the repair of Bishop Stapeldon's tomb. Stapeldon's arms were argent, two 
bends wavy sable, on a bordure of the last 8 keys or. An older coat was without 
the bordure and the keys. Izacke says the elder coat was in the north side of the 
quire of Stapeldon's own chapel near the high altar. The College amas, as allowed 
by Portcullis in 1574, were Argent, 2 Bends nebulée, within a Bordure, sable, charged 
with 8 pair of Keys, addorsed, or ; Visit. Oxon 5, 86, oo. 
z It is touching to see what a number of bequests he had ruade to poor scholars. 
The aecounts are for several years ,Reg. 576), and the repeated payments show that 
some received so much a year. These names include Henry de Tuvertone, William 
de Heghes, and William de Polmorva ; and others also may have been scholars» 
i. e. fellows. This may apply also to the scholars who have letters dimissory (536), 
though only Philip de Chalvedon is expressly said to corne from Stapeldon Hall. 
One item is ' in expensis domini R. de ]?,rayleghe eundo versus Oxoniam, morando 
ibidem pro edificiis et negociis scolarium de Stapeldone halle, et redeundo, per xv 
dies xxxvis.' Dean Brayleghe paid several visits as aeting exector (578-9). The 
bishop's other agents in communicating with the College were Robert de Tauton 
(Stapeldon's Reg. 385) ; and Gilbert de Koldishall (R. of White Roding, Essex

scholars to the site of the present College, where he obtained from 
Peter de Skelton for £5 o on 6 Oct. t315 S. Stephen's hall in 
S. Iildred's parish. Later on, a tower, part of which still remains 
in the rector's house, was built on the site of S. Stephen's hall , 
with a gate under it opening out into the lane inside the City wall.

&c. Enrolled on the plea-roll of the Hustings, Monday the Nativity 
of the Virgin for the first time, finally Monday after Epiphany. 
No one, from looking at a modern College, with quadrangles and 
spacious chapels, halls, libraries, and gardens, could form any idca 
of how things looked in the Middle Ages. There were, it is true, 
small chapels, halls, and libraries, placed quite irregularly ; but the 
rest of the area was occupied by small lod#ng houses, woodhouses, 
outhouses of ail kinds, dotted about narrow fanes. Still less could 
any one standing in the Radcliffe Square (cleared of its population 
in x749 by Dr. Radcliffe's executors) realise to himself a state 
of things when the Convocation house and Divinity School and 
Bodleian, Ail Souls and Brasenose and Hertford, did hot exist, but 
there were on the west side rows of small houses used as Schools for 
disputations (Wood's Cily i. 89) ; on the east side the dwellings of 
the writers, bookbinders, parchment-makers, and illuminers ail along 
Cat Street ; and here and there a public house, among the two-storied 
halls and the sdds or wooden booths used as shops; and when the 
dark lanes and the large cemetery of S. hlary's (Clark's Colleges 92) 
were so unsafe at night as the Coroners' inquests under Edward I 
show them to have been ; when the University itself had no public 
buildings, but used S. hlary's for its Convocation house, its Library, 
and its Treasury; when the city wall ran from New College by the 
site of the Sheldonian, through ]ïxeter, behind the present houses 
in Broad Street (where there are remains of the bastions), and Broad 
Street itself was the city ditch, zo feet deep, with a few Halls on 
the opposite side, on the site of Balliol and Trinity, with Horsemonger 
Lane in front of them on the edge of the ditch. 
Many Halls were named from some Saint, or from their owners, 
some from having a sign, some from having an elm by them, or 
a well, or from being at a corner of the street, or having a roof of 
stone or tile or lead, or having glass windows, or a chimney--a rare 
thing, when there was usually a charcoal tire in the centre of the 
room (after the fashion of the central tire in the huts of primeval 
tribes), with an opening above to carry off the smoke. The heat 
of the tire was thus ail utilized while now most of the heat goes up the 
chimney. A procession of students sometimes marched round thc 
central tire in a College hall. ' In these,' says Johnson icosely, ' thê

fireplace was always in the middle of the room till the Whigs 
removed it on one side.' The early Halls were of wood, and thatched, 
with wooden shutters for the open windows, and mere latches for the 
doors (from the later use of staples came the name of Staple Hall). 
Stapeldon Hall gradually absorbed several of the old Halls or 
lodging houses, Bataile hall in 132o , Fragnon hall I3z 3, Sheld hall 
i325, Scot hall i3-8, Bedford hall i335, Culverd hall I353, Hambury 
hall i38o, Castel hall (i358, finally) 1385, Checker hall i4o6, Peter 
hall I47o. Besides some outlying property, it thus took in the frontage 
along the city wall to the north and that along S. iIildred's Lane to 
the south. Some of these grants were at first made to two or three 
of the fcllows, who later on transferred them to the College--perhaps 
xvhen a further mortmain licence could be obtained. 
Ilataile Hall 1 in S. glary Ilagdalen parish, opposite the church, near 
the Curia Regis where the Carmelites lived (Peshall z37 ), lying bctween 
the tenement of Thomas Bost (Hist. Comm. iv. 446), and that of

In 4o3 the College let Bataille hall to William Roll and Agnes his wife for thirty 
years at 6s Bd a year. There was an Oxford family called Bataile. On o Dec. 
 803 the reversion of some bouses in llagdalen parish, on lease to Mr. Welch,

Bedford Hall, in S. l\Iildred's (Wood MS. D. 2. 418, Wood's Cily 
i. 113, 227, 506, 513), had its name from a family so called, from 
whorn it passed to the Chalfunts. In 1288 it is said to be a placea 
8 feet broad and 20 feet long, and a wall dividing it from the tene- 
ment of Hcnry de Bedeford. In 133 ° it is described as lying between 
Chekerhalle which belonged to Philip de Eu and Castellhall which 
belonged to John de laWyke. On 20 June 1334 Walter de Chalfunt 
disposed of it to Stephen de Hereweldesore and William Liskerd; 
and on 4 July they gave Emma widow of Henry de Bedeford a mes- 
suage in S. Mildred's, between the tenement of the Abbot of f)seneye 
and that of John de la Wyk, at a penny rent, and on 25 Sep. 335

Walter de Chalfhunte and Emma de/3edeford his mother, to Richard 
de Gloucestre and Thomas le Irmongere executors of Henry's will, 
ail the actions and demands which he had under the will. But in 
Sept. 1335 Walter and Stephen gave it to the Rector and Scholars of 
Stapeldonhall, and in June 1337 John de I3edeford son of Henry 
and Emma de ]3edeford quitclaimed it to thern at Winchester, as 
a tenement of Walter de Chalfhunte and Emma his wife by gift from 
Walter's brother Henry ; and on 15 Dec. 1348 John de Littlemor Prior 
of S. Frydeswyde as chief lord remitted to them two shillings of rent 
due from Henry de I3edeford's property, which is defined as lying 
between S. 19eter's Hall belonging to the Abbot of Oseneye and 
Castelhall belonging to John de la Wyk. 
On 18 Nov. 1358 John son and heir of John de la Wyk granted 
to John Halle and John Wyseburgh, Castelhall which was opposile lhe 
Chapd of Slaeldonhall on lhe soulh side (see computus Lent 1357); 
and on 19 lov. he bound himself to them in JL2o to hold them

Hart Hall sometimes cost more than the rent in repairs. The 
lease of Black Hall and Car Hall had expired x624, but the College 
continued to hold them without a lease till x633 when payment ends. 
Part of Black Hall was long afterwards let out for dwellings and shops. 
The University leased Black Hall to John Cross an apothecary in 
 664. Cross leased part of it to John Bric "kland tailor in 1669 (Peshall 
8). Brickland's assignees sold it to Cutler a College servant. Exeter 
Collee appointed the Principals of Hart Hall until 6o4, except for 
certain years during which New College was building, at which rime 
some of that Society lived there (Gutch i. 488, iii. 64o-I). 
Hart Hall i anciently contained two messuages. One, in 5  Henry III, 
was the tenement of Henry Punchard butcher, containing his house 
and court and, at the head of the court, a piece of ground, about 18 
yards long and i  yards broad, which was for some years leased to 
the owners of Sheldhall adjoining. From Punchard ail this passed 
through intermediate owners to Elias de Herteford, who let the place 
to Scholars and so made the place Hart Hall. He granted it 13 °  to 
his son Elias, who on x 7 June 13ox sold it,' between Blackhall on the 
west and Micheldhall on the east,' to John de I)okelington u. The other 
messuage, consisting of a house and court, ' between the tenement of 
Osney on the east and that of Adam de Spaldyng on the west,' be- 
longed to AIice wife of Giles de Stokwell ; she conveyed it to Agnes 
widow of John de Staunton, who sold it, 25 Ap. i3o8 , to John de 
I)okelington, in whose rime it was called Arturhall (documents printed 
in Bodleian Charters 287). On x2 Ap. i312 Dokelington conveyed 
them both to Walter de StapeIdon and Richard de Wideslade cIerk, or 
their assigns, for 8o marks. Hart Hall now took the name of 
Stapeldon Hall, and on 7 Ap. 13i 4 Wideslade sold his share of the 
joint ownership to the bishop. In the saine year the king licensed 
Stapeldon to give all this property to twelve scholars residing in the 
University, riz. the Rector and Scholars of Stapeldon hall, to hold to

them and their successors. A license of alienation was procured 
26 July J34 from the Prior and Convcnt of S. Frideswide, the mesne 
lords of Hart Hall, who reserved a rent of two shillings. The Rector 
,and Scholars, after they had removed from Il,art H`all, usu`ally let it 
for 24s in Michaelmas term, and the same in Lent, for 2s in Easter 
term (Trinity term does not appear). Arturhall was let at half those 
sums. On 3 Oct. t334 the College leased Arturhall to Walter 
de Plescye, R. of West Wardon, for ten years at 9 s rent, Walter 
doing the repairs; witnesses M. Richard de Evesham, M. John de 
Aylesbeare, M. Thomas Bradwardinc, Peter de Aynho bedell of the 
Univcrsity, Nicholas de Seintefey and others; the lease expired at 
Michaelmas 1344; Arturhall is only mentioned ag`ain by naine in 
thc summer term of 4o, it had probably merged in Hart Hall 
under ont Principal since 344. In I544 owing to the Plague the 
rent of Hart Hall was much diminished, but it was to be raised when 
there wcre 3 ° students. In 551 the rent was again revised. On 
i o June  559 'their tenement or house ordained for the advancement 
of lcaming, commonly called Hart Hall,' was leased to Philip Randall, 
Principal, for 2i years from the previous Lady-day at a rent of 
33s 4d, the College doing the external repairs in slatt and slatting, 
and the Principal the inward reparations of p`articyons windowes doors 
flooring and glazeing, except it shall please the Rector and Fellowes of 
their benevolence to give lime boards stones clay nayles as they had 
accustomed to do before the making of this lease. The said æhilip 
shall not let &c. to any but one of the foundation of the said College, 
and a bond of £6 I3s 4d is added to secure this, by P. Randall and 
John Collens M.A. and B.M. On 2o July 57 . Randall renewed his 
lease. On z8 Oct. 593 a lease was made, and sealed 3 Nov., to John 
Evelcighe for z years on the same terms, except that he was to 
undertake all repairs. After Eveleighe's death there was a lawsuit 
about Hart Hall with Dr. Price the Principal, and the College evi- 
dences about it were sent to Archbishop Bancroft in  6o8. Price htd 
to pay up 6]; years' rcnt at £   3s 4d since Eveleighe's death. In

Collcge, and the College did not attempt to resume fui/ownership of 
tlart llall till 723, when a dispute began with Dr. Newton the 
Principal. In winter 154o the Collcge paid John French the Prin- 
cipal 2os 'pro exhibitione domini /3icknelli stabilienda in Aula 
Cervina, concessio ex communi consensu sociorum.' This exhibition 
issued out of certain lands given to the monks of Glastonbury by 
Bicknell, knight (Gutch ii. 69, 80, iii. 642, App. p. 34; Wood's 
F. 28 pp. 256-7), and was appointcd for the education of ten poor 
scholars in tre University, but by whom and in what manner it was 
scttled on Hart Hall, whether for ever or only as tre Hall should be 
applied to such uses, or with other limitations and conditions, does not 
appear, the original settlement being lost. Tre crown granted part of 
this exhibition to Emmanuel College at Cambridge on the dissolution, 
so that apparently the gift to Hart Ilall was hot perpemal. See 
Madan's llralcrials 88, Reg. of Congregation 4 June 1521. 
The scholars of a College would at first be expected to attend the 
parish church, but naturally soon tried to obtain a chapel of their own. 
On 9 July t39 John Parys reetor of Stapeldonhall assures the 
Rector of S. lXIildred's, in the presence of Masters Richard Noreys, 
Henry Bloyou, Stephen Pyppcote, John de Sevenasche, that if 
a chantry should be held in tre College chapel, it should not 
prejudice the rights of that parish. In 326 Henry bishop of Lincoln 
allowed bishop Stapledon to consecrate the high altar of tre chapel

henceforth two fellows should be elected from the diocese of Sarum. 
Stapeldon's Statutes bear date z4 April 1316 when they wcre 
aceepted by the Rector and Scholars. There were to be thirteen 
Scholars, i.e. Fellows,--a mystic number which appears at several of 
the Colleges. Twelve were to study philosophy ; the thirteenth was 
to be a priest and chaplain studying scripture or canon law. Eight of 
the twelve were to be from Devon, four from the Archdeaconry of 
Cornwall, either born in the diocese or settled thcre. The Chaplain 
was to be appointed by the Chapter of Exeter and, if he should be 
declared unfit by two-thirds of the fellows, the Chapter was to appoint 
another. He was to celebrate and say the services and manage the 
choir. Candidates for fellowships were to be at least sophists, i.e. 
students in arts. They were to 'determine as I3.A. ' within six years; 
to determine meant disputing in the schools the Lent following the 
degree of Bachelor. Within four years of that rime, or at least in 
the summer term next after the end of four years, they had to 
' incept' as I.A. Then they were to ' read,' i. e. lecture, two years ; and

after one year more vacate the fellowship within fifteen days. The 
fellowships were therefore, at the outside, only tenable for rather less 
than fourteen years. They also ceased as soon as a fellow inherited 
or obtained sixty shillings a year, or any ecclesiastical benefice ; and 
any one absenting himself rive months in the year, or refusing to take 
the office of Rector, also lost his fellowship. ]3ishop Fox, the 
founder of Corpus, thought it sacrilege for a man to tarry any longer 
at Oxford than he had a desire to profit. I3esides this, the fellow- 
ships in most Colleges were so poor, and the fellows were so crowded 
together, two in a room, with one or two students on truclde beds 
beside them, that they naturally left on any chance of promotion, and 
hence the succession to fcllowships was often rapid. 
The Rector was elected at the beginning of October, after the 
annual audit; the previous Rector was re-eligible and was hOt seldom 
re-elected once or twice. He was more like the t3ursar than the 
Rector of our days; he looked after the money and rooms and 
servants but, if any two fellows demanded the removal of a servant, 
the Rector was to appoint another in his place. He was Janilor, 
as at rnost Colleges, and his rooms xs'ere over the Gateway. 
Fellows were to be elected ' without regard to favor, fear, relation- 
ship or love, the electors naming men apter to learn, better in character, 
and poorer in means, or at least those x-ho best corne up to these 
three conditions.' The fellows were bound to dispute twice a week, 
but questions of natural science were to take the place of logic every 
third rime. While sophists or bachelors, the fellows were also to read 
' abstracciones, obligaciones, cynthategrammeta 1, circa signa (?), necnon 
logicah'a e! nalurah'a.' lIen were not educat«d in College. They lived 
there, under proper discipline, and certain disputations took place 
there, but the College tutor was as yet undreamt of, and education 
was conducted by the Regent masters ho lectured at the Schools. 
Osney alone had x4 out of the 3 2 schools in School Street, Exeter 4- 
Ail such schools were let out, when not wanted by the owners them-

do not go into such minute detail as those of other Co]leges, e.g. at 
Queen's in x34o the use of musical instruments is forbidden because 
they lead to levity and distract men from their studiesl. 
Under Stapeldon's system, the Rector and other officers were 
always young men. The fellowships, as in most colleges, were 
distinctly given for the children of the poor, and the number of the 
fellowships should have been increased as the revenues grew. But 
the Colleges did hOt carry out their Founders' wishes in this marrer. 
In some it was ruled that personal property to any amount did 
hOt vacate a fellowshlp, and livings were estimated at the old value in 
the King's ]3ooks. And in most Schools and Colleges the ficher 
classes have appropriated what the Founders gave to the poor. 
Students corresponding to seritors and battellars are now few, x'hile 
in 6t6 16 colleges educated between 400 and 500 poor students 2. 
The regard paid to poverty brought forward some eminent men. 
Such for instance was Walter Lihert, a miller's son from Lanteglos by 
Fowey in Cornwall, who after being fellow of Exeter became bishop of 
Norwich and built the scullDtured roof of the Cathedral ; he SUlDported 
in his troubles Reginald Pecock the author of 'The Repressor of 
over much blaming of the clergy,' whom he had probably known in 
his undergraduate days, when Reginald taught in one of the schools 
in School Street belonging to Exeter College s. Similarly long after- 
wards John Prideaux, Rector  6  2, used to say ' If I could have been 
parish clerk of Ubber (Ugborough), I should never bave been bishop 
of Worcester'; on his failing to become parish clerk, he had been 
advised to come as a poor scholar to the University. Benjamin 
Kennicott was master of a charity school at Totnes till by the 
assistance of some friends he vas able to enter the University xhere 

 Stapeldon's statutes were printed (with those of Sir W. Petre) in I855 for the 
use of the Royal Commissioners. They were printed afresh from the MS. in

he became a distinguished Hebrew scholar. Still later William 
Gifford, afier being a cabin boy on board a coasting vessel and then 
at the age of I5 an apprentice to a shoemaker at Ashburton, was 
helped to go to Exeter College by Mr. Cookesley a local surgeon and 
gained a bible clerkship. This assisted him to complete the education 
hich gave him a leading position in the literary and political world. 
He remembered his own fise in life and founded two Gifford exhi- 
bitions at Exeter College for poor boys from Ashburton school. 
There was some narrowness in the old system, but the way to fise 
was hot closed to the poor, and the Universities had the character of 
popular bodies in which learning and study were recommendations. 
The Universities were a kind of High School, more like the Scotch 
universities at present. The education given was practical and suited 
to the wants of the country. Latin was necessary at a rime when even 
the accounts of a manor were kept in that tongue ; it was the common 
language of Europe and almost the sole language of literature, since 
the vernacular tongues were as yet very imperfectly developed. The 
number of boys or men at this High School was large, and the 
chance of advancement was considerable. There was therefore as 
keen an ambition among the small landowners to send one of their 
sons to the University as there is now in Ireland to send a boy to 
Maynooth. The number of ordinations in the ]3ishops' l,egisters is 
very large. In Stapeldon's first ordination, 2I Dec. 13o8 at Çrediton, 
he ordained 1.oo5 persons, viz.: 155 subdeacons, 77 deacons, 15 
priests, beneficed clergy 4-" (3 ° as accolites, the rest subdeacons, 
deacons, or priests); 273 received the first tonsure, and there were 
443 accolites. Ail the names are given. Mediaeval wills show that 
almost every man whose circumstances made a will necesry had 
sons or near kinsmen in orders. Livings are often given to mere 
boys, who then have leave of absence for some years to study at the 
University. Dispensations are often necessary on account of illegiti- 
mate birth : some of them may be due to the extension of the degrees 
within which marriage was prohibited to as distant relationships as that 
of fourth cousins; while the births from 'a priest and an unmarried 
woman' may represent what were really half-allowed marriages of the 
clergy (Collier a. 1128, 1215, &c.). Of grown-up students there were 
probably never so man)" as at present. The boys were brought up by 



HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. xxxv 
carriers, who had a regular route, which they took every year, about the 
beginning of October, when the University year commenced ; and this 
journey only cost 5 d a day for each boy, and perhaps hot more than 
3d for the very poor. The boys could hOt go home so often as now, 
but had lectures in the Long Vacation on natural science. The rent 
of a room was about 2s 6d a term. Many of the students walked 
both ways. In modern rimes we hear of Thomas Carlyle walking oo 
mlles to Edinburgh. The Universities were Liberal in the Middle 
Ages, now they are largely Tory; the reason is that then most of the 
students were poor, now they mostly belong to the well-to-do 
classes. As to the age of taking the degree, Cavendish ed. Singer 
827 p. 66 says that Wolsey taking his B.A. at 15 was a rare thing 
and seldom seen. 
Owing to this general poverty a number of chesls ere founded in 
the University for making loans to poor students. The money was 
lent on security of books, plate, or other property ; it was, in fact, a 
pawnbroking business which charged no interest. Thus in 316 
Ralph Germeyn founded a chest of io for making loans to poor 
scholars in the College; Masters of Arts might borrow a pound, 
Bachelors a mark ( 3 s 4d), and Sophisters half a mark, i»rovided that 
they deposited pledges of greater value. The College was also 
allowed to borrow for its corporate needs. But ail loans had to be 
repaid within z months. Some years afterwards Richard Grenfield 
founded a similar chest; and Robert Rygge did the same towards 
the end of the century. In 158 9 we hear of t3osisto, Helme and 
Eveleighe being appointed ' Keepers of the Germin Chest.' 
We have occasionally a mention of the books that were studied. 
Thus Henry Whitefield, a former fellow, left the College money to 
buy books, with which ' ]3urley on the Ethics, on the Topics, and on

z446 the College bought parchment at Abingdon which it sent to 
the monastery of Plympton in Devonshire where a book was being 
copied for the College . But when Bishop Fox founded Corpus, he 
expressly ordered his lecturer in theology hOt to use the interpreta- 
tions of the Bible by Nicholas de Lyra or Hugh de Vienna, but 
those of the Greek and Latin doctors. Such was the spirit of the 
English Renaissance. 
The fellows had their rooms free ; and ten shillings a year as well, 
but the Rector and Chaplain received t'enty. Each fellow xvas al-_o 
allo'ed ten pence a week for his 'commons' but a proportion was 
deducted for each day that he was absent, and so of his yearly allow-

find a sum of 3 s 4d allowed for ' visiting friends,' and seeing to private 
business; and some clothes (liveries) 3 were supplied, apparently 
once in three years. In z544 the arrangement about liveries is as

is lXI.A, is to receive 2os, each B.A. 16s 8d, others 13s 4d--subject 
however to the rule that £2o at least shall always be reserved 
in the College chest ; at the saine rime an improvement was ruade in 
the commons, especially in xvhat were called ' thirteenpenny commons' 
i.e. on 2o feast days 1. The common chest had three keys kept by 
the Rector, Senior Fellow and Chaplain ; there is still an old chest of 
this kind in the muniment room. The allowance of ten pence a week 
may seem small, especially as the arrangement was ruade just after 
the great famine of 13 x 5, but Exeter was poor, and the sure allowed 
in the ficher colleges was hOt much larger : it was raised to a shilling 
in 4o8. In 1326 the Oriel statures give twelve pence as the sure, 
which was to be ruade fifteen pence in rimes of scarcity. In 134o 
the Balliol statutes allow eleven pente, which might be raised to fifteen 
pence when food was dear . These allowances should be judged by 
the general rate of living. Thus, poor mass priests had 6 marks 
(£4) in the fourteenth century, Kellawe's Reg. Dunelm. 3 P. lxxxviii; 
and twenty nobles a year (£6 x3 s 4 d) was a bare fiving for a priest 
just belote the Reformation. 
The average prices of the period 126 x-x 4oo supply the explanation. 
Wheat was 5 s xo]d the quarter, and we must allow a quarter to each 
man in the year. Meat was a farthing a pound. Butter cost 7.da 
gallon, but fluctuated much in price. ' Butter, I imagine, rince it is so 
commonly sold by the gallon, was melted--a process which preserves 
it from becoming ranci& though at a great loss of flavour.' In offset 
cases it is likely that it was pressed into earthenware pans, or into 
wooden tubs, the produce being salted in mass, as well as over each

 At New College in 4oo it was ordered that the allowance of  2 pence might 
bc increased to 3 or even 6 pence in seasons of scarcity, and even to 8 pence 
when the bushel of corn sold for more than two shillings. The Lincoln statutes of 
48o define a time of dearth as a time when a quarter of corn sells for ten shillings 
or more; ten shillings is also the limit fixed at AI1 Souls in 443; but in 58z the 
Visitor of All Souls ratifies the change of the allowance from 6 pence to as 8d 
for a Master and 2s ad for another Fellow ; Ail Souls Statures p. 90 ; Magdalen

In Lent i36i the 'quarter' of beer cost 2s 8d, but this was better

amount paid for spices on such occasions is remarkable (Rogers'

nodern condiments, these were the choicest flavours which mên 
desired. Sometimes the fellows shared in greater festivities, for 
instance in the Determination feast of Richard, the son of Thomas 
Holland Erl of Kent, on the Ionda)" and Tuesday before Ash 

 Rogers i.  : il. 644. The lagena or flagon ofwine was 6 pints, the pottle 
4 pints. The quarter of beer, i.e. x ;" ' lagenae cure potello' was an Oxford measure, 
costing xs Bd, xs, or xod according to quality. OEhe gallon at 1½d is of better 
quality than that bought by the quarter. But the lagena seems to have been 
a variable measure. Besicles vine, glo.es were constanfly gi,en to visitors, as 
now at weddings and funerals. See Index, Rogers i. x9, iv. 58, Blomfield's

Wednesday, 21 and 22 Feb. 1395 . The account of the feast is 
preserved among the archives of Merton, but several of the persons 
mentioned are fellows of Exeter, and Thomas Hendeman a fellow of 
Exeter was Chancellor a. It was in t'act a University feast as liveries 
were given to the proctors and bedels. The charges are twofold, for 
liveries and an entertainment. The liveries were either of coloured 
cloth or of variegated pattern (.-tragulatus). The cloth was served 
out in various lengths, from nine, eight, and seven and a hall yards 
to a yard and a half, the breadth being uniform. The hoods were 
trimmed with fur , the names of the material being various as miniver, 
bugeye, popul, and stanling (perhaps the vinter fur of the squirrel). 
The pieces {parmi) of cloth, containing 24 yards (virgae) each s, were 
bought from John Hende a London cloth-merchant. The coloured 
c]oth was given to acadcmics, the cheaper variegated cloth to other 
persons and servants. 'To M. John Wykham 73 yards, 3I. John 
Gylys 8 yards, each proctor 73 )'ards, M. Ralph Rudryth 9 yards, 
Lentwardyn 7. yards, Talkaron 7 yards, M. Thomas Hendeman 
8 yards' (at the head of the list previously we find 'I2 yards of 
coloured cloth for M. Thomas Hendeman, price of the yard ris iÆ,' 
probably given him as Chancellor), 'z 9 determiners î yards each,

The hall and kitchen are of course constantly mentioned. They 
were not on the site of the present hall and kitchen but more to the 
north. There was a large washing basin in the hall (lavacrum) 
with a pipe to it (fistula), and once we hear of a ' lavacrum* pendens

1418 ' 6s for 11 ells of linen for a tablecloth and two towels for High

candles ; a great torch of wax cost 3 s 6d in Lent I358 , a torch for 
the hall 4s 7 d in winter 136o , 1oXd is given for making two torches

used for the tire. The University petitioned against cutting down the 
forests of Shotover and Stowe Wood, since it would ruin the University 
by destro)ng the wood necessary for fuel. Chimneys came into use in 
the fourteenth centuryS. The word chimney at first meant hearth or 
fireplace, and coal meant charcoal and collier charcoal-burner. In the

a plank for the kitchen chimney (fumerali coquine), and eà [or "spiks" 
for the chimney and for an old dressingboard: Sec a. 1384 . Chimneys 
in the smaller rooms are mentioned Lent iSee '9 d for building 
a chimney (camini) in the chamber of lI. Nycholls and lI. Slad.' 
Lent 1547 ' I3S 4 d to Jacson a mason (lapidario) mending a chimney 
(fumarium) in the chamber of lI. Whiting.' The smoke of wood 
was of a fragrant character, and was thought to be medicinal and 
beneficial. With coal smoke it was different, and coal could hardly 
be used uuder such primitive conditions 1. ]3ut by Tudor times wood 
was becoming scarcer and dearer, and owing to the need of using 
cheaper fuel chimneys came into use even in common houses. 
Previously, says Aubrey, 'ordinary men's houses, and copyholders' 
and the like, had no chimneys, but ttues like beaver holes.' And 
Harrison in 1577 notes the use of chimneys in inland towns as one 
of those things that had marvellously altered within the recollection 
of old men, whereas in their younger days there were hOt above two 
or three in most uplandish towns, except in great houses. Students 
liked to remain round the tire in hall after dinner, partly for the 
warmth, or for the sake of an occasional drinking bout (bibesia); 
hence several Colleges have stringent rules against staying in hall 
after dinner. Thus at gIagdalen  all are to leave the hall at curfew 
time, hora ignitegii, except on Saints' days when they may stay on and 
amuse themselves 'ith ballads and read historical poems, chronicles, 
and the wonders of the world. At I3alliol there was tire in the Hall 
on certain feasts and their vigils (Early Ealliol by IkIrs. de Paraxcini 
294 ). Candles were dear, nearly twopence a pound, that is two 
shillings of our money; men could hOt afford to rcad in their rooms 
after dark, they lacked the genial inspiration of good candlelight. In 
rude ages men have few amusements or occupations but what daylight 
affords them. Other students, besides Sixtus V, may have had to read 
by the light of the lantern hung up at the crossing of the streets. 
The French scholar Amyot read by the light of the charcoal in the 
J Among Wardcn Cla)ton's misdeeds Wood reckons (L i. 396) ' burning in

brasier. Dr. Wood at S. John's, Cambridge, read by the rush light 
on the staircase (Wordsworth 41o). Alexander Adam in the last 
century read his Livy in the early morning by the light of splinters 
of bogwood. The burning candle was sometimes protected by 
a lantern 1. In 1596 a tire occurred through one 'intempestive 
studentis.' Hence partly the 'ignitegium.' It was noted that 
at S. John's Cambridge some candles were lit before 4 in the 
morning. A veryold lantern is preser'ed in the Ashmolean museum; 
it is of bronze and the light is transmitted through crystals. The 
wick of the better candles was ruade of cotton, which at that time 
grew in Cyprus, Sicily and Italy; but rushlights continued in use 
down to out own days (in 1662 Wood paid 6d for a pound of double 
rush candles, in 666 5{d for a pound of single rush candles). 
lXluch use was ruade of rushes in other ways. They were used to 
strew the hall and chapel. In summer i358 l-d was paid for rushes 
(cirI,i) for thê chapel (Blomfiêld's Lou,er lÇford 42), and in summêr 
1473 sixpence for the saine purpose; straw was used at Christmas, 
rushes at Whitsuntide. The men too were much crowded in their 
rooms. Two feliows sometimes lived in one chamber. John Hennok

noon-drink ; Anglosaxon scencan, to pour out, is saJd to corne from shank, the tap 
of the barrel being a hollow shankbone. Such names came from the chnrch 
services. The ixth hour service, sexta (whence our siesta, for a sleep after a meal) 
was at 12 o'clock, a.ud the ninth hour service, nana, at 3- At 3, half way between 
dirmer and supper, a drink of beer and a hunch of bread were allowed, and 
commonly named bibesia or biberia »wnachoru»t, and the custom of bever still 
survives at Eton, XVinchester and Westminster. A similar drink and hunch of 
bread in the early morning came to be called breaktast (jentacuh«m) towards the 
close of the fifteenth centuD', as the dinner hour was pushed on. Pepys constantly 
mentions his mornittg draught (Wordsworth 126, 433). An old line (adapted 
from Suetonius) runs Jentaculum, dein prandium, post cenam comessatio. But as, 
on fast-days, it was a long time to wait till 3 o'clock, the nones were put back to 
 z o'clock, and the Sexta disappeared ; hence the words noon and numheon. 
The second part of nuncheon means a drink, but the lump or hunch of bread that 
accompanied the drink got mixed up with nuncheon, and the word is now spdt 
ltmcheon. The Latin for nunsyns was meremta. 2Vona in Dartre Iurff. xxvJJ. 4,

The account of the expenses of building a new Library in 1383 is

More R. of S. Petrock's Exeter £2o, Bishop Stafford enlarged it in

books had to be sometimes pawned to one of the loan chests of the

The fcllows devoted considerable time and pains to managing their 
property. It was difficult to get money carried safely from one part of 
the country to the other. Sometimes the Chapter of Exeter sent the 
Gwinear tithe to their bailiff at Bampton in Oxfordhire (the Bishop of 
Exeter had 6 hides of land at ]3ampton--Oxf. Arch. Soc. 1887 p.  29) ; 
but sometimes the rector or a fellow had to go to Exeter or Gwinear 
for it s, and travelling was not easy nor was it always safe. Even in 
Risdon's rime the roads in Devon were 'cumbersome and uneven, 
amongst rocks and stones, painful for man and horse, as they can best 
witness who have made trial thereof. For be they never so well 
mounted upon horses out of other countries, when they have travelled 
one journey in these parts, they can, in respect of ease of travel, forbear 
a second.' The roads were not meant for carriages or carts, goods

were conveyed on mules, and even in the early part of the last centur) 
there was little but a system of bridle paths West of Exeter. In Lent 
 40o John Jakys the rector was robbed of ten shillings on his way to 
Exeter. A horseman was often accompanied by a servant on foot 
to take charge of the horse, the distance travelled was about 2o 
mlles a day ; but messengers on foot at a penny a day seem to have 
accomplished a greater distance. Money and goods were sometimes 
entrusted to the Exeter carrier (cursor or vector) 1, when the Gwinear 
tenant had brought the money to Exeter; autumn 46o '6d to 
the Exeter carrier for bringing us a " pannus depictus" given us by 
M. John Colyford prior of S. John's at Exeter to hang up in

which the I)ean received on our part for the fruits of S. Wynyr, £3 
which Robert Clyst received in the treasury for the fruits of S. Wynyr 
when he last settled with the seneschal of the treasury.' The carrier 
even in 7o7 went to Exeter only once in rive weeks (Reliquiae

fourpence a mile (Wood's Z" p. iii ; Rogers iii. 674 ). J. Taylor's

' the carriers of Exeter do lodge at the Star in Bread street. They

carriers or posts that go to Exeter may send daily to Plyrnouth or to 
the Mount in Cornwall ' (Rogers i. 660 ; /3oase's Oa?ford I94). The 
University carriers' stables were in Kibald street, which tan from 
Oriel backgate to Horsemulen Lane, and crookedly thence to the 
Angel backgate (Peshall '35, 14Q. The carriage up the Thames 
from London by water did not reach further than Maidenhead, and

sions to inquire into the state of the College, the Visitor interfcred to 
see that their revenue reached them regularly, to increase the amount 
paid for commons in a time of dearth, and to help them to pay debts 
incurred under such circumstances, to protect them from oppression 
by the Chancellor, to restore a fellow who had been expelled, to 
remove an imbecile Rector, and to make that office tenable for life 
instead of annual. 
It is worth while showing in some detail how the Visitors dealt with 
the College. The Latin of the following documents is given in ed. i.

Thomas (Brantingham) bishop of Exeter, visitor founder and patron 
of the College of Stapildon Hall, and lIaster William Wilton Chan- 
cellor of the University and lIaster lIartin de Lideforde rector of the 
College and proctor for the scholars had certain complaints (giv.en 
below) read, which the Chancellor of the University had brought against 
the Bishop and Rector and College, and after discussion referred the 
whole matter to our decision. And we have decided that the removal 
of the chaplain John Dedemor by the Rector and Scholars shall stand 
good, but that the bishop ma)' cause him to be admitted to the first 
l,lace vacant in the College ; that any persons aggrieved by the Chan- 
cellor's proceedings shall hOt be hindered in any scholastic act, and 
that the Rector and Scholars shall withdrav any proceedings against 
the Chancellor in the Court of Canterbury. The tenour of the com- 
l,laints was as follows : 
Ilitherto the Rector had the free disposal of ail the rooms, and with 
the consent of a certain part ofthe Scholars could punish and remove 
an incorrigible chaplain without appeal, and admit by election another 
chaplain on the presentation of the Dean and Chapter of Exeter, 
except during the ]3ishop's Annual Visitation. But when the Rector 
Blaster Robert Lideford had, with the consent of ail the Scholars, 
removed the chaplain John Dedimor, glaster William Wilton the 
Chancellor restored Dedimor to his chaplain's place and to his 
chamber and table ; and he excommunicated the Rector on his pro- 
tcsting, and suspended him and lIaster Richard Rowlond from ail 
scholastic acts for three years, and forbad any advocate or notary, on 
penalty of imprisonment and banishment, to plead the case of the 
Rector or Bishop ; and he imprisoned lIaster Robert Worthe, notary 
public, for writing an instrument of the matter on the requisition of the 
Rector and Scholars ; and he banished lIaster lIartin Lideford and 
Thomas Worthe for taking up the matter; and when the Rector and 
Scholars made lafful resistance within the College and not without, 
he bound lIaster Robert Lideford the Rector, 1I. Richard Rowlond, 
John More, Renald Povy, Philip Stonne, and gI. Robert Worthe 
their notary by pledges, under penalty of £1oo and over, not to 
hinder the peace of the University in that way; ail contrary to the 
Çharters and Statutes of the College. Done in a great chamber

Good Mr. Dean, 
It was signified to me some rime ago by the Rector of Exeter 
College, that, in pursuance of the Powers given by an Act of Parliament 
made in the 7th year of the late King, the Rector and Fellows of 
Exeter had thoughts of selling a small Parcel of their Estate to Jesus 
College in your University ; to make which sale good and effectual the 
Act requires the Consent and Approbation of the Visitor. 
The following is the description of the Parcel to be sold, as it stands 
in the lease now in being, whereby it is at this rime leased out to Jesus 
College, and as it has been communicated to me by the Rector of 
Exeter. 
' Ail that their piece of ground, scituate 1)'ing and being in the parish

of St. Iichael's in the city of Oxford, containing in length from North 
to South 72 feet, and in breadth from East to West 3 ° feet, on which 
lately stood two tenements, now pulled down by the said Principal and 
Scholars, by the consent of the said Rector and Scholars, to new build. 
And also all that piece of ground, being one hundred and rive feet in 
ail, at the North end of the said piece of ground next the street, being 
3 ° feet long the whole Breadth of the said Demised Premises only 
and four feet deep at the East end thereof and three feet at the West 
end, vhich was lately granted or agreed to be granted to the late 
Principal and Scholars from the City of Oxford (ith other Grounds), 
on vhich ground against Exeter College Lane the said Principal and 
Scholars of Jesus College intend to build and lay to the ground belong- 
ing to Exeter College ; together with all Buildings thereon erecting and 
all ways and passages thereunto belonging or used or enjoyed there- 
with, with their and every of their Appurtenances, which said first men- 
tioned Premises were lately granted to the said Principal and Scholars 
by the naine of all that their messuage heretofore a stable, &c.' 
This is the description ofthe Estate proposed to be sold. In order 
to obtain further Information concerning it, I had once thoughts 
of sending a Commission of Enquiry by way of Request to seven or 
eight Gentlemen at Oxford, but because I am willing to give trouble 
to as few persons as possible, and because the opinions of a friend or 
two will give me Full and Entire Satisfaction in this matter, I chose to 
desire the Faour of ¥ourself and lIr. Prolocutor (to whom you will 
be so kind as to give my Service) to let me know your sentiments in 
Answer fo the Two Enquiries Annexed to this Letter. If Mr. Dean of 
Exeter be now in Oxford, he also, I dare say, xrill very readily let me 
have his Sentiments about this affair. Should he be absent, I shall 
entirely acquiesce in whate,er shall be lIr. Prolocutor's Judgment 
and ¥ours. 
I do hOt find by lIr. Rector's Letters to me that the Affair is 
Pressing. I shall be obliged to you if you will let me have )'our 
Sentiments at your Leisure. I ara, Good lIr. Dean

The Wiclifite moement largely influenced Exeter ; its history has 
been written by John Lewis, a member of the College. In 1382 
an assembly of divines censured Wiclif's doctrines, and strong 
measures were taken by the Archbishop and the bishops against 
the Wiclifites at Oxford. William Serche the chaplain of the College 
vas removed in 1384 (the year of Wiclif's death) by the Archbishop, 
who appointed William Talkarn in his place 8 Dec. 1384: Serche 
howe,er was presented by Richard II to the rectory of West Tilbury 
inEssexX 2z Aug. i39z andheldittill 4o8. Didthis a.risefromthe 
favour shown in the royal household to the new views ; or had Serche, 
like so many others, altered his views ? One of the Archbishop's 
commissaries in Serche's case was John de Landreyn, once fellow of 
Exeter and then of Oriel, who had joined in condemning the Wiclifite 
doctrines, in 1381. Another, Robert de Tresilian " was one of King 
Richard's strongest supporters and was executed when the king 
lost power. His fate is the first legend in William Baldwin's 3[irror 
for 3[agislrales, 1559 (Ath«nae i. 341). Thomas Tm-ke, who became 
fellow this same year I384, abjured for heresy later on. William 
de Polmorva had been named fellow of Queen's b)" the founder of that 
College 3, and several fellows of Exeter became fellows of Queen's 
afterwards, viz. Henry Whitefield the provost, Robert t31akedon, 
William Middleworthy, John Trevisa, William Franke, Robert Lyde- 
ford; and these were expelled in 1379 by the Archbishop of York the

became fellows of iIerton, such as (not to mention William Read, 
aftervards bishop of Chichester) Thomas de Brightxvell who xvas 
professor of divinity there and suffered much from Archbishop 
Courtenay (Lewis' ll'?hf 6); Richard Pester vho was of three 
societies successively, Exeter, University and iIerton 1; and Robert 
Rygge who was repeatedly Chancellor of the University, but was 
removed in Blay 1388 when Thomas de 13rightwell succeeded, and 
so again in I39I when Ralph Redruth * succeeded, both of these being 
also fellows of Exeter. The second and fourth Principals of Hart 
Hall were fellows of lerton and, as well as the third, became Wardens 
of New College. Rygge however joined in condemning the Wyclifite 
doctrines, and it is possible that he belonged to the party which was 
rather concerned to uphold the independence of the Uni'ersity against 
the Archbishop's claim to the right of Visitation 3 than to maintain 
Wiclifism in its entirety; Benedict Brente opposed the Visitation in 
i41I and was imprisoned in the Tower (Gutch i. 547-5o, iii. App.

Primate of all England and Legate of the Apostolic See in England, 
and certain of his suffragan bishops, of which number we were» in fit

dently ordained..., that the several suffragans of the Province of 
Canterbury in their dioceses should inquire and cause to be inquired 
with due solicitude concerning heretic depravity; and it has lately 
corne to our ears that a certain Laurence ]3edeman, who goeth in 
sheep's clothing, having entered our fold secretly with fraud and 
stealthily under the fcigned image of holiness, with foxlike craft 
endeavours in his public and private discourses to turn aside our 
sheep and to lead them into various heresies and serious errors, 
therefore being desirous to chase away such fox from out fold lest

under our authority carefully inquire where and what things the afore- 
said Laurence, xvhether in churches or in other places in Cornwall,

preached, propounded, said or proffered to our sons and subjects;

certify to us by the feast of S. 3Iichael the Archangel, wheresoever we 
may be in our diocese, by your letters patent containing the series of 
these things, and also what things and what sort of things the afore- 
said false prophet Laurence or any other may have preached against 
the Catholic faith and the articles thereof; and stating clearly the 
names also and surnames of ail and singular who may have fallen 
into heresies of this kind, or errors, and their sayings or statements : 
citing moreover the said Laurence to appear before us at our manor

swear for the future ...' But Stevine afterwards eonforrned and 
became Rector of Lifton. 
There was a close connection between Exeter and Ielton during 
the Wiclifite period. Walter de la, Ierton had established a college of 
secular students, who were to be deprived if they took an)" rnonastic 
vows. Hence they sympathised with Wiclif the great enerny of the 
rnonks and friars. Lincoln, on the other hand, was founded 4 7 in 
order to suppl)" a perpetual succession of enernies to Wiclif's doctrines, 
for Richard Fleming bishop of Lincoln had once been a follower of 
the reformer and now hated hirn and his rnemory and his associatesL 
A friendly relation xvas kept up between Exeter College and 
Canterbury hall even after Wiclif's tirne, for in Lent 448 we bave 
'7 d for oblations on the day of the burial of the Warden of the 
College of Canterbury.' This however ma)' have been onl)' an 
ordinary act of friendship between Colleges, for in autumn 47I there 
occurs ' zd offered at Ierton at the rnass for the Warden -' Arnong 
the receipts for Lent 556 occurs ' iod for the oblations of those of 
5Iagdalen, 12d for the oblations of the fellows of Balliol College

rine's day,' I393 '4 d to the fellows to offer at Merton at S. John

Oxford took a deep interest in the healing of the Forty Years" 
Schism. Henry Whiteficld * had rnanaged some college business at 
Avignon in the winter of 363, and Thomas White had been sent 
to the Roman Court in 376 'pro nostre dornus perpetuaeione' (e

Henry IV was displeased with the University in 141 i, and Prince 
Henry defended its liberties. Benedict Brente, fellow of Exeter, was 
one of the proctors vho were compelled to resign on this occasion, 
and committed to the Tower. As soon however as the University 
could assert its liberty they were re-elected. 
Several members of the College were connected with the House of 
Lancaster. William Palmer was physician to Margaret of Anjou, 
Walter Lihert her confessor, and promoted by llargaret Beaufort ; 
John Arundel was physician to Henry VI, John Stanbury his con-

Cleter's breakfast when he came from Malmesbury xvith an acquittance for the 
King's tenths.' In summer 1459 there is a mention of Queen's gold, ' .d to 
M. John Wynterborn public notary for his labour in framing two literas rocura- 
lorias for the College; for cart3ing the two letters committed to 1I. Gosse

the Court was at Coventry preparing for the civil xvar, and Margaret must have 
been making every effort to procure money. Queen's gold * meant a mark 
of gold paid to the Queeu for every hundred marks of silver paid to the King" 
in the way of fine or other feudal incident, and, even if hot recognisable in D,mes- 
day, is probably as old as the reign of Henry I. The proportion of gold to silver 
was one to ten "l" in the early rimes, and possibly this proportion xvas maintained 
in calculating Queen's gold. A general payment is mentioned Lent 14o5 ' 4z .,a 
to the King for the rateable proportion of out rents as other Collçgrs pad.'

Ixx HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 
Henry VI Rector of the University of Caen 1431 (he had taught 
there in 1418) during the English rule in Normand)', when Paris 
remonstrated with Oxford on the unkindness of setting up a rival 
University against the mother University of Europe (Lyte c. I2). 
It ma)' have been this connection with the royal family that induced 
Henry V's executors (one of whom was Edmund Lacy bishop of 
Exeter) to give the College 5os Bd in winter 1424, and Cardinal 
/3eaufort's executors a larger sum 1. The interest in the French war 
is shown by such entries as winter i4.8 ' 6d oblation for the Earl 
of Salisbury,' killed at the siege of Orleans. The pressure of the 
war is seen in such entries as winter 1433 ' 163" Bd for 19 bushels of 
corn taken for the king'; sometimes it was necessary to conciliate 
the king's officers, summer 1438 '2od gift to the officer who takes 
coin for the king.' John Hancock was Warden of the College at 
Ottery when Henry VI visited it in 45z. Sir John Fortescue of 
Exeter College accompanied Queen 3Iargaret in her exile and rote 
his book De Zaudius Z,oeum A»gh'ae for prince Edward. In Lent 1447 
'iiiid oblatis in die obitus domini Ducis Glowcestre.' When Peter 
Courtenay, bishop of Exeter, returned from exile with Henry VII, the

Good Day the Greeks say Kally glerry ; is it possible that Weye 
did not know the classical Greek words ? 
But now the study of the Classics had begun to replace that of the 
Scholastic Logic, a change which formed the basis of the modern 
system of education, and which gave tone and form to European 
literature 1. The Grammar Schools, i.e. Schools of Latin, had much 
influence in developing a classical English prose. The degrees had 
long been a fiction--no one had been rejected at Paris from I395 to 
15oo. Gascoigne p. 3 complains of degrees being given at Oxford to 
ignorant and vicious persons through the frequent dispensations from 
statutes granted for money by the Regent lXIasters and Proctors. 
]3oth Universities had declined tmder Edward IV. Sir Thomas 
Elyot was not at either (L ed. Croft p. xxxvii). In I535 the 
students were ordered to attend the new classical lectures at 3Ierton 2. 
Only Latin had been required from the clergy, or in fact from any 
one. Amoretto, in the Relurn from Parnassus l'P" 25, 43, has been 
at Cambridge, but knows no Greek. 
Englishmen had been attracted to Italy by the spell of that new 
knowledge, which was also the old. There alone were Greek manu- 
scripts and Greek teachers to be found. There each fresh manuscript 
was a sacred possession, for what treasures of wisdom might it not

freed once and for ever from that barbarous scholastic sys.em, which 
claimed authority over ail knowledge : 
• Once remote»t nations came 
To adore that sacred flame, 
When it lit hot many a hearth 
On this cold and gloomy earth.' 
These men returned to make their discoveries known to their country- 
men, to their fellow-students in the Universities. 
Exeter College is favourably known in connection with these men. 
William Grocyn taught Greek in the College Hall, and Richard Croke 
sojourned in the College for some rime. We find the College twice 
entertaining Grocyn's friend Dean Colet. The Cornelius mentioned 
several rimes in the Computi was probably Cornelius Vitelli , a learned 
Italian who taught Greek in the University, Lent i491 '6d for a new 
lock for the door of the fuel-house of Cornelius, and 3 d for a key to 
his study, 5 d for mending the books Pantelon' [p. xxxvii]; summer

summer i49 z '4s from Cornelius for his chamber last terre and 6d 
for his log-house for last term.., i6s from gI. Grosyne for a year's 
rent of his chamber due next Iichaelmas.' John Skewys 3, Wolsey's

Duck one of the fellows was Wolsey's chaplain in i517 and proctor 
for Salisbury in the memorable Convocation of i5. 9. Philip Baie,

S. Ambrose, Origyn, S. Jerom, and certain books of ]3ede, and works 
of S. Gregorye, with other such books as my overseer shall think 
meyt.' This shows the revival of study. John Dotyn vas a ' medicus 
ac astrologus insignis.' Thomas Harding of New College, afterwards 
famous as Bishop Jewel's opponent, had a pupil in the College. 
The Customs ofthe College as written down .o Dec. 1539 illustrate 
the state of things ; they are as follows  :-- 
Old customs, handed down by men now eighty years old, from 
still older times. Some of the older ones bave a hand drawn against 
them in the margin (9 and io). 
i. The Statures order the fellows to wear black boots or of some 
colour akin to if; and priestly dress, i.e. plain shirts, hot parted down 
to the navel, nor with lappets hanging down like promontories, nor 
plaits round the neck like courtiers. 
2. Bachelors and scholars (scholaslic] coming to the House of God 
should avoid all noise, stories, bad manners; let them give themselves 
to prayer, hot to books of proane literature, and uncover their heads 
during service, and stand up to sing ][dgmfical, ,''t«nc dimfllis, 
Te 1)cure, t?enediclus, but kneel at the Ix].rieleson. 
3- The two junior fellows should ahernately guide the singing of 
the psalms, and the junior should open and arrange the books and, 
after service, close them and put them back; and, with the bible 
clerk, deck the altars with a richer covering on solemn feasts, and 
take it off towards evening; and read the Epistle at masses for the 
dead. 
4- Now, since most Masters are in hol)' orders and prevented by 
various causes, besides the consecration of the Lord's Body, from 
being in the choir at the beginning of marins and vespers, we exhort 
the bachelors to corne early and be present when the bell stops, lest 
vaiting for them should prevent the chaplain from celebrating mass 
and cause others hot to celebrate or to go away. 
5- Bachelors should frequent the public musaeum or library and, 
after the octaves of S. Dennis, stay there every night from 6 to 8, 
stud)'ing good books, especially of logic and philosoph)', unless the 
Rector thinks good fo intermit it owing to excessive cold, or relax if

to refresh thcir minds ; and they shall observe this rule to Sexagesima, 
and this shall hold also of the longer disputations. 
6. ]3achelors should accustom themselves to public lectures and 
sophisms, either at Harthall, or any other place they may prefer. 
7. All fcllows leading the lire of scholars, that they may the sooner 
acquire learning, according to Walter Stapeldon's stamtes, should 
attend public lectures at Harthall ; and, since logic lectures profit litfle 
unless there is constant practice in disputations, they should attend 
the Sophisms and Variations kept up there with such care, and if they 
do hot, the Principal or his deputy shall punish them, and report 
defaulters to the Rector for severer chastisement. The same holds of 
the battellars. 
8. Bachelors should hOt be too familiar with Masters and should 
respect their higher degree. If any bachelor shares the Rector's dish 
at dinner or supper, let him eat with his head uncovered. 
9- The Rector and fellows feed those in the prison once a week 
at an expense of 4 d, on such food as will feed many of them. 
o. Old fellows are entertained thrice at the College expense by 
the Rector or his deputy. 
t t. No one is to fise from dinner till the Rector has said Grace, 
except for good cause, approved by the Rcctor. 
I.. No one is to enter the buttery or take anything, without the 
presence and leave of the I3ookkeeper, Bible-clerk or Manciple. 
13. Scholars are to walk about with uncovered heads within the 
Academy, until they are bachelors and have determined in Lent. 
t4. Every fel]ow is to wear the dress of his degree at serinons in 
S. Iary's and at theological disputations. 
5- Bachelors should have gowns reaching down to the knees, till 
they take their Master's degree. 
The College as a x'hole sided with the opposition to Henry VIII's 
measures, as did the West of ]ïngland, from which so many of its 
members came. John Ioreman in particular, Vicar of Menheniot, 
was an opponent of Queen Catherine's divorce, and was imprisoned 
in Edward VI's reign. One demand of the Cornish insurgents in 
549 runs thus, ' We will have Dr. Moreman and Dr. Crispn, which 
hold our opinions, to be safcly sent unto us, and to them we require 
the King's Majesty to give some certain livings to preach among us

our Catholic faith.' Moreman was distinguished in the Convocation 
of  553. He was also famous in the west as a schoolmaster. John 
Hooker of Exeter, the antiquary, was brought up under him and 
Fraises the goodness of his disposition. At his living of Menheniot 
he taught the Creed, Lord's Frayer, and Commandments in English, 
the FeoFle hitherto using only the Cornish language. This was 
Frobably in obedience to Cromwell's Injunctions of 536 'to cause 
their FeoFle to learn the Creed, the Lord's Frayer and the Ten 
Commandments in the vulgar tongue, and to give them plain in- 
structions uFon these,' and the similar Injunctions of  538 and  5471. 
Cornish plays were still acted in regular amFhitheatres, of which 
there are even now some remains at S. Just near the Land's End and 
at Perranzabulo. These I_,lays * were probably written by ecclesiastics, 
and the names of places mentioned in them seem to point to the 
monastery of Glasney near Penryn (founded by Walter I3ronescombe 
bishop of Exeter -64-7 for thirteen canons and thirteen vicars) 
as the place where most of the writers resided. John de Landreyn 
feliow of Exeter was canon of Glasney 376, William Noe canon 
43; Walter Trengoff was Provost of Glasney 4z7-36 , and 
Michael Trewynard and John Evelyn Provosts later on in the 
century. These University men may have had something to do 
with the composition of these dramas, in which more art is used in 
continuing the series of events than we find in the Townley, Chester, 
and Coventry Mysteries, the contemporary English collections. 
Norden, writing about 584, says that 'of late the Cornishe men 
have much conformed themselves to the use of the Englishe tongue ; 
from Truro Eastwarde it is in manner wholy Englishe.' But as late 
as 64o the aged inhabitants of S. Feock, a church attached to 
Glasney, required the sacrament to be administered to them in the 
Cornish tongue, and the formula used for this purpose has been 
preservedS. One of the Cornish dramas written by William Jordan 
was translated into English ' by Mr. John Keivin of Moushole of 
the Lower House at the request of the right reverend father in God

Jonathan Lord Bishop of Exon i697.' Two of the Provosts, John 
Nans and Alexander Penkyll were successively Rectors of Camborne, 
and one of the plays is on the subject of S. Meriadoc the patron 
saint of that parish, where the Saint's Well is still known ; the MS. of 
the play was written in 5o4 by ' dominus Hadton' while Nans was

destruction fell on the Protestant Service ]3ooks and ]3ibles in Mary's 
reign. The Library has only two copies of Tyndale's New Testa-

strengthen the English Church there, but Ley soon vacated and the 
plan seems not to have been further carried out. The annual election 
of Rectors now came to an end. William More was continued in 
office by Edward VI's Visitors, but his term of otce ceased abruptly 
at Mary's accession s, when the Queen's Visitors put a medical fellow, 
William Corindon, in his place. Some other fellows vacated this same 
year, such as Richard Tremayne, well known as a preacher, who fled 
to Germany. In 554 the Doctors met at Exeter before disputing

Church, hoping that some moderate compromise would be ultimately 
possible. The Register says, 28 July 1556, 'John Nele and Thomas 
Pynche were excused from visiting their friends as probationers were 
wont to do, because Cardinal Pole the Visitor prohibited any one being 
absent at the time of his Visitation I ; they were however to carry out 
the usual custom next year.' John Fessarde one of the fellows was 
probably a leading man, as he was appointed by Mary to preach 
through the diocese of Salisbury during the vacancy of the see. We 
also hear of William Cholwell ' who (Faslia. 1555), being learned and 
a zealous man for the Roman Catholic cause, was designed by certain 
of the Queen's Commissioners, 24 Ap. 1554, to preach concerning 
various matters which were controverted in Queen Mary's reign.' He 
was perhaps the ' honest and religious teacher who 5rtuously trained 
up many of the best gentlemen's sons of Devon and Cornwall at 
Thomasine Percival's free school of Week S. Mary (Carew's Cornwall, 
ed. 181o, p. 282). But in Elizabeth's time the state of things altered, 
the Council of Trent ruade compromise impossible. John Neale, the 
first perpetual Rector was deprived by the Queen's Visitors for refusing 
to appear at service in the Chapel. In 157o William Wyot was 
imprisoned in the Ca.tle, and in Bokardo from io Jan. to Good 
Friday, for refusing to declare what Papists he knew to be in the 
College 2. Romanism was still strong in Devon and Cornwall, whence 
so many of the members of the College came. In 1579 Strype 3 
reports that at the Visitation of I578-9 ' in Exeter College of eighty 
were found but four obedient subjects, ail the rest secret or open 
Roman affectionaries, and particularly one Savage of that house, a 
most earnest defender of the Pope's bull and excommunication of the 
Queen. These were chiefly such as came out of the western parts, 
where poper)" greatly prevailed and the gentry bred up in that religion.' 
Thomas Percy, afterwards one of the conspirators in the Gunpowder 
plot, was sojourning in the College 5 June 1579, ' not then of lawful 
age to take an oath.' Robert Yendall, Vicar of the College living of 
Menheniot, was one of those ho abandoned their livings in 1559. 
He ' fled lrom the river of Exemouth to Morlaix in ]3rittany. Smart,

a prebendary of Exeter, went with him.' Edward Risdonl too was 
' very instrumental in the foundation of Douay College in I568.' In 
the list of matriculations 575, there are some well-known names, 
such as that of William /3aldwin the Jesuit; Edward Habington, 
executed i586 , and possibly William Habington the poet loyer of 
Castara. 
When things became more settled under Elizabeth, there was a 
revival of acti,dty in the University, some new colleges 'ere founded, 
some old ones improved. Trinity had already been founded by Sir 
Thomas Pope in I554 and S. John's by Sir Thomas White the next 
year. Elizabeth founded Jesus in t57t, and Nicholas Wadham 
was preparing to found Wadham, though the design was not fullv 
carried out till after his death by his widow I)orothy daughter of Sir 
William Petre. Petre had led the way by what was almost equivalent 
to refounding Exeter College in I564 . when an entry occurs in the 
accounts, ' 14 d for ine and sugar at the reception of ni. Wod'ard 2

became a fellow of AIl Souls in 523, and was Principal of Peck- 
water's Inn or Vine Hall. He resided long in France and owed 
something to his training abroad ; when a document was to be trans- 
lated into foreign languages, he and Wotton were looked on as the 
proper persons to do it . He had been seven times ambassador in

Wotton to get him books from abroad t. Wotton writes in '553 
from La Ferté Milon that he sends him some books, and had it not 
been that the prevalence of the plague in that city prevented his going 
to Paris he would have sent some more, but he trusts to a future 
occasion. If he bas not the Lord Winchester's book called 
lIarcus A nlhonius Constanlinus (Gardiner's Confutatio Caz, illalionura, 
i.e. reply to Cranmer's answer to the Explication and Assent of lhe 
lruc Catholic 1;'aith), it shall be sent to him ; and again from Paris, 
in 554, that he has purchased for Petre the new old Pandects of 
Florence and shall bring them home with him; should he wish for 
any other book let him mention it in his next and he will do the best 
he can to procure it. Petre wished Wotton to succeed him as Secre- 
tary of State, and Wotton writes in 556 that as for Petre's office, 
knowing the weakness of his body and the pains and travail he has 
sustained therein already, he cannot but think he does well to leave it. 
And because this office is so easy and pleasant and Wotton so meet 
a man for it, Petre may be assured that he must needs thank him as 
much as the thing deserves, that would wish him to it. ' I am now so 
broken through age since my coming hither that you shall not know 
me when you see me. And therefore it is rime for me to get me into 
a corner and take me to my beads and to remember that we have not 
here pcrmancnhm ciz,itatcm and therefore to begin to put on my boots 
and prepare myself to go to the other place x'here we look for rest.' 
Petre was Secretary of State during the reigns of the four Tudor 
sovercigns. He was already a prominent man under Henry VIII, at 
first 538 as Clerk in Chancery  and then as Secretary of State, in 
which capacity he was one of the special council assigned to help 
Queen Katherine (Parr) in 544, when Henry left ber Regent during 
his absence in France. He was one of the Ten Visitors of the 
University in 549. On one occasion he presided in Convocation on 
behalf of the Royal Vicegerent Cromwell, who had in fact first brought

was trying to upset Henry VIII's Act of Succession passed in favor 
of ffary and Elizabeth. Wotton applies to him to intercede for some 
of his relations who had joined the rebels 1. It was Petre who advised 
llary to forbid the legate entering England, who was sent by the Pope 
to remove Cardinal Pole. He was an excellent diplomatist and, though 
he said little during an interview, was an attentive observer of his 

sovereign's interest. Ah (said Chatillon

This was Sir William Petre. 

He ceased to be Secretary in x557, but a state document written by 
him occurs as late as 24 Feb. x56-, and he was Chancellor of the 
order of the Garter from that year to his death 3 Jan. 57- Latterly 
he suffered much from illness, l'eter Vannes writes to him from 
Venice o Oct. x556 that he is sorry to hear that Petre is somewhat 
troubled with a spice of the strangolione (quinsey), that he does hOt 
know the peculiarities of it, but intending to go to Padua within three 
days will consult with his friends as to the kind of rcmedy most propice 
for him. On 9 July 56o Petre writes to Cecil that the Queen is 
minded to begin a progress toward Portsmouth : he wishes much that 
Cecil would corne before her remove, for that he is unable to follow 
except in a litter, and that not without danger and pain. Petre held 
some of the Abbey lands, about which Sir Edward Carne writes rioto 
Rome z8 July '555 ' Petre's matter is in the hands of the Datary, 
who has promised favour in all Carne's suits. Had delivered the 
book to one of experience here to draw a minute thereof. Stands in 
doubt whether he had all gain or no; for if the beginning of the 
book be "Ianerium de Ging ad Petram alias Ging Abbatisse alias

margin, thinks he has all ; if that be hot the beginning of Petre's book

Kidlington, the Rectory and advowson of Merton, and of South 
Newington, and the Rectory of Ardinon (Yarnton), some lands in 
Little Tewe once belonging to Osney Abbey, and some land in 
Garsington (ail in Oxfordshire), together with land at Tintinhull in 
Somerset. The Vicarage of Kidlington had belonged to Oney, and 
was now transferred to the College together with the Rectory, by an 
exception to the usual rule about vicarages. It was annexed to the 
Rectorship of Exeter College, the Rector holding it without institution 1. 
This arrangement is expressly noticed in the statute 12 Charles II 
cap. 7, sect. 23 . Petre settled £79 12s 2d per annum on the 
College to found seven fellowships, and for the eighth £5 2s and an 
annuai income to the House fund of £ii 8s 1¼d, in all £96 is 3]d 
(the revenues of the old foundation were valued in -6 Henry VIII at 
£83 2s, besides the valuable ground on which the College stood); 
he left the College £4o by wili, and his wife Arme left the saine 
amoum. His son John Lord Perte, besides a legacy of £2o, gave 
from himself, his mother, and some friends £ 15 6s 8d to augment the 
old fellowships and make them all equal; this annual rent was bought 
at Mich. 1572 of M. Phylpotte by the College. The Petrean 
foundation in ail was reckoned to be worth £Iii 7 s iiId. Sir 
William reserved to himseif and his son the nomination of the 
Petrean fellows. Afternvards the Çollege was to elect from the 
counties in which his family held property. These counties were 
originally Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Oxford and Essex, but belote 
the alteration in i854 there had been added to them torkhire, 
£ancashir«, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambri«ge (including Che Isl« of El_),), 
Kent, Middlesex, Hampshire, Northants, Cheshire, Cornwali, Surrey; 
though the counties italicised had lost their claire by Lord Petre ceasing 
to hold land in them *. 

 In 1785 a question arose about the Curacy, the curate being Thomas Bovet. 
It appeared that the Vicarage is a lay fee, subject to a payment of £IO a year 
to a curate, and the Rector on vacating the Headship of the College cannot retain 
the Vicarage. The Rector should grant ride to a curate hot as Vicar but as 
Impropriator of the Vicarage, if he is distinctly so from the rest of the College ; 
but should the Vicarage be given in the grant to the Rector and Fellows, the title 
should be under the College Seal (letter from Bishop's secretaD" , Reg. i6 .May and 
o Oct. 1785, Jnne 1786, 3 June 179o). See p. lxxxvii.

during the rime of the said sickness.' Tl,is was by no means 
a useless permission when Oxford suffered from outbreaks of plague 
and sickness of ail kinds. There were at least i2 such outbreaks in 
Henry VlII's reign, and a great mortality, especially in the sweating 
sickness of 1528. Oxford suffered much from plagues ail through 
the middle ages. A number of deaths are mentioned in the Computus 
of autumn 14o 7. Autumn i518 'xxis vid pro comunis Rectoris,

1489, I493, 1499-15oo, 15o3 . In 1563 the plague prevented the 
election of a Rector and the audit of the accounts, and we hear 
several rimes of the University being dispersed and one or two fellows 
only being lcft in charge of the College.

Elizabeth's Charter of Incorporation is dated 22 Mch 566 t. She 
empowered William Alley bishop of Exeter to draw up new Statutes 
for the College with the advice and consent of Sir William Petre. 
Under these statures the Rector was tobe at least a Master of Arts 
and thirty years of age, but hot a bishop; and no one was tobe 
elected a Fellow who had more than ten marks of inheritance or life 
interest. The day of election was 3 ° June, the morrow of S. Peter 
and S. Paul. The Subrector was to preside at the disputations in 
theology, the Dean to preside at the classical and philosophical 
disputations of the bachelors twice a week, to lecture on logic to the 
students (scholastici) and hear them dispute in loc daily, and require 
loc repetitions from them thrice a week--but the Dean might pay 
a bachelor to do his work. He was himself paid by the fees which he 
received on presenting men for the degree of B.A. or M.A., and by 
payments of eightpence a quai-ter from the commensales and attellarit" 
who attended his logic lecture. He might punish a bachelor by 
setting him a literary task, or making him dine apart on short 
commons. Great stress is laid on the public disputations in Hall, 
on subjects of logic, natural philosophy, metaphysics, or moral 
philosophy. The discussions lasted for two hours on the written 
questions that had been proposed, but on feast days or for special 
reasons the Dean might limit them to one hour. The fellows who 
were studying theology were to dispute in the chapel on theology once 
a week in full terre, except in Lent. There is a special arrangement 
for times of pestilence. Logic lectures * were given from 6 to 7 in 
the morning, logical disputations held from o to i i and from 6 to 7 
in the evening, repetitions from 3 to 4 on Monday, Wednesday and 
Friday. The time was reckoned by a waterclock. The usual hour 
for supper was then at 5 o'clock; dinner had been moved on from 
a Statures 3, App. p. 68 ; see p. 86 two mills at Cudlyngton.

dined at half-past lZ. 
Fellows elected before taking their B.A. degree were not to take 
it till 3 years after their election; a rule not altered until 1854. 
Masters of Arts, after completing their necessary Regency were to 
study theology and take their B.D. in ten years from their Regency, 
and D.D. within eight years afterwards--but this last rule might be 
dispensed with by the Rector and majority of Fellows. Any one 
vho did not take these degrees vithin four months after the periods 
named was to be deprived within the next month. When at a much 
later period the University decreed that no one who was not in Orders 
should take the B.D., this rule had the effect of forcing the Fellows to 
take Orders within ten years and four months from their Regency*. 
A fellowship was vacated at once by marriage s or entry into an 
employment incompatible with residence ; and vacated within a year 
by accession to an inheritance, canonry, or life-income of ten marks 
a year : if a Fellow took a living worth £ 8 in the King's Books he 
vacated within a year unless he resigned the living within that year.

to the rules about B.D. and D.D., S. John's Statures pp. 59, 6t. In J 594 an order 
was ruade that a B.D. must stndy two years before his g'race was propounded : 
see nnder 1778. Laud's Statures of I634 reqtfired disputations and a Latin sermon, 
the preacher to be in deacon's orders at least. But by custom the Vice-chancellor 
dispensed with those exercises once a year, and also in favonr of the proctors, 
rdieving one of them from the disputations, the other from the sermon. The 
reqnirement of a sermon before D.D. is very ancient. In the middle ages some of 
the greatest theologians were not ordained ; and many friars preached who were not 
in orders ; ordination was hot ruade an absolute requisite for preaching till after 
the Reformation. The Latin serinons at S. Mary's were treated as a divinity 
exercise of the present day is, only the Viee-chaneellor proctors and bedels attending, 
and there was no public notice. The honr was 9 in the morning. In May 833 
they were abolished, but the candidate was required to show that he was in deacon's 
orders. A stature of the next month, June x833, required priest's orders. I owe 
great part of this note to Dr. Griffiths. Holwell took his B.D.  79 ° though hot in 
Orders. 
s Si quis uxorem duxerit ant matrimonium vel sponsalia contraxerit ; this seems 
to make a marriage engagement vaçate the fellowship, but it was not o intcrpreted

The Reetor rnight hold one living, but only on condition of continued 
residenee in College--and an Ordinance of John Lord Perte alloxved 
him to hold two livings on the sarne condition, of whatever value they 
rnight be, so far as the laws of the land would allow. As the value 
of rnoney altered these conditions were relaxed. In 744 Edward 
Morshead, who was 'seised of a real estate of £o or £ per 
annum,' took a fellowship on the ground that, owing fo the altered 
value of rnoney, this was rnuch below the o marks mentioned in the 
statures. On 5 Sep. 758 the ¥isitor permitted a living worth £80 
tobe held with a fellowship: and 5 Dee. 793 other propeny

of rnoney is well stated in Bishop Fleetwood's Cronicon

the limit xvas £5- He notices that even the cost of taking a degree 
had increased fivefol since the rniddle of the fifteenth century. 
Another Visitor's decree decides that vhen three or four Fellows 
dernand a College meeting, the Reetor is bound fo summon one, and 
to propose an)" question which two or more F¢llows demand to have 
put to the vote, and the meeting is hOt to dissolve till a decision has 
been corne to. AIl residents were allowed, besides dCçrt'B¢l, twelve-

times, Ail Saints day, Christmas and Candlemas, the fellows might 
play tbiclis carlt's vulgo cards in hall at proper hours and for a moderate 
sure. Latimer's famous 'Serinons on the Card' delivered on the 
Sunday before Christmas had a special relevancy to the approaching 
season 1. Shooting inside the College is forbidden, and no one ma}' 
keep hunting dogs, ferrets, rabbits, hares or hawks within the 
precincts 2. The Bible was to be read during meals s in Hall, and no 
one was to talk vhile the appointed portion of Scripture was being 
read; afterwards they might talk in Latin or Greek but not in 
English--except on great feasts or unless strangers were present 
or there was some other reasonable cause such as College business. 
The battellars were to talk Latin and Greek always while in College 
unless they were excused for lavful reasons 4. Noadays any one 
who quotes Latin in a College Hall at dinner-time is liable to be 
sconced. The Fellows sat in messes, four to a dish, and only Iasters 
of Arts might sit at their table unless the Rector and rive seniors 
gave permission to some one else. Lever, the lIaster of S. John's 
at Cambridge, in 55 o describes * his scholars as going to dinner at 
ten o'clock, content with a penny piece of beef [about 2 lbs.] among 
four, having a little potage ruade of the broth of the same beef, with 
sait and oatmeal, and nothing else. 'After dinner they be either

three weeks from the end of Terre 1. There were to be three copies 
of the statutes kept, one by the Rector, one in the Common Chest, 
and one chained up in the Library, and the statutes were to be read 
aloud twice a year in Chapel at 8 o'clock in the morning, and any 
fellow not attending lost a fortnlght's commons. This custom of 
reading the statutes lasted down to out own rime. The gates were to 
be locked at a quarter past nine in the evening and not opened again 
till rive in the morning without leave of the Rector, to whose bedroom 
the keys were carried ; and there are heavy penalties against sleeping 
out or scaling the College walls. The I)omains of the Çollege may 
De leased out, but hOt complete manors; and there are to be no 
reversionary leases at ail, and no leases of an)" kind for more than 
5o years; tithes or rectories are only to be let for io years, and 
no Fellow is to take a lease of the College. We sec the reason for 
this in the leases for 4t, 5 o, or 6 3 years mentioned below as given

to Fellows in *.49 and I5591. Reasonable fines might be taken, 
and the system ot" fines went on to our own days. A progress was 
to be ruade every three years to visit the College estates, situated 
hot more than 4o toiles from Oxford, by the Rector and one Fellow. 
The statures end with a description of the duties of the Visitor, and 
the mode of removing the Rector or any Fellow. 
By a later Ordinance * a Fellow was to be allowed, if Lord Petre 
approved, to travel for four years to study medicine or civil law, and 
this valuable rule was often acted on, the earliest instance being that 
of Thomas Fortescue in 1566. Sometimes permission of absence was 
given to Fellows engaged in the service of the Crown abroad (compare 
Pembroke Statures p. -o; so at Wadham, Jacon's Wadham 63. 
The influx of new Fellows seems to have incited those of the old 
foundation to draw up a list of the Fellows from the beginning; and 
such a list, though ver)" imperfect, was compiled by Robert Newton 
the Rector and William Wiott the Subrector in x574. Seven Petrean 
Fellows were named by Sir William Petre soon after Whitsuntide 1566 
and admitted on the 3o June (except Spicer, who was admitted • July), 
and an eighth was appointed by Petre in 1568 after his new gift of 
three tenements to the College. One of the new Fellows had been 
a Fellow of S. John's, another was incorporated at Oxford for the 
t,urpose of taking the Fellowship, the first named had been a Fellow 
of the College previously. It shows the unsettled state of men's minds 
that several of the early Petrean Fellows left the country and became 
Roman missionaries in England or abroad. John Howlett laboured in 
Transylvania and at Wilna, Ralph Sherx-ine was hanged by the side 
of Campian 2o Nov. 158,, John Cornelius was hanged at Dorchester 
4 July 1594 ; Richard Bristowe became President of Douay, and was 
the chier of the translators who put forth the Douay Bible. ' These 
thine unnaturall sons,' says G. Hakewill in his address to Oxford, ' who

 Sir William Petre and his successors are to have the right of nominating two 
fellows, one of the old foundation and one of the Petrean, ' who are to have full 
power to absent themsdves from College without loss or detriment, and to travel 
into foreign parts, there to remain for four years so that during that time they 
resort to some University and therein apply themselves to the study of Physic or 
Civil Law.' These were to have an allo,ance ot £6 x3s 4 d z4ati«i causa, but hot

of thy wombe, and the efficacie of that milke which they drew from

things, and Thomas Glasicr of Christ Church was elected Petrean 
Fellow 4 Oct. I578, on pressing letters from Sir John Petre, and 
Rector on the 2st. The Royal Commissioners had held a Visitation 
of the College on the previous 2 August 'in sacello horam circiter 
octavam,' and this was the result of their inquiry. On 3o Aug. they 
removed Carter and Cliffe for a time (Bellott and Dun being elected 
Sub-rector and Dean in their place), and expelled Cornelius' for his 
dernerits.' Rector Newton resigned in Oct. I578, and Glasier was 
elected in his stead. Thomas Holland was similarly brought in as 
Rector in i59 e on Glasier's death 1, on Sir John Petre's and Queen

xcvi HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 
Elizabeth's recommendation : he was one of the translators of the Bible 
appointed by James I. These able rulers soon worked a great change, 
and Exeter became remarkable for its discipline and learning, tinged by 
Puritan views. The state of education had not been good in Oxford 
for some time; sec Pocock's Burnet vi. 405 (letter of Jewel), 4xo, 434- 
William Turner's 1-1erbal, Cologne 156 , in the dedication to Elizabeth 
mentions the low ebb to which the study of botany had sunk in the 
Universities and in England generally. We now find many donations 
of books to the Library. 
Leicester as Chancellor enforced subscription to the Thirty-nine 
Articles in x58 to exclude Romanists or Romanisers; James I in 
x616- 7 to the 3 articles of the 36th Canon of 6o 3 to exclude 
Puritans. By the 33rd Canon it was a title for Orders if a man was 
a Fellow, or an ,M.A. of 5 years' standing 'that liveth of his own 
charge in either of the Universities.' 
In 59 z, when Elizabeth came to sec the amendment in learning 
and manners, the old rents of the Colleges were taxed, to entertain the 
Queen, atone per cent. Exeter was rated at a total of £-oo, the 
Rectorship was worth £70, the hole annual income £600, there 
were 30 comrnoners 1. There were feasts at degrees and at elections 2. 
The constant mention of poverty at this time ma)' be partly due to the 
fact that the value of silver fell during Elizabeth's reign. 
In i572 we find a list of the members of the College, but without 
their Christian names. Besides the Rector and zo fellows, 91 other 
names occur, including 3 masters, bachelors, undergraduates, servitors 
and servants. Some can be identified in the matriculation lists 
(printed ed. i. p. x85 in lhe order oflhe IS.), since Davells, Banfilde, 
/'À,elighe, Strete, Barrer, Ierser, Zewarde, Coode, Bawden, Davie, 
West, Foxwell, Sandwithe, Turner, Crandon occur in both lists nearly 
in this order. Sec Clark i. 389-91, ii. 3z, 63. The list runs thus:--

Smale, Cheyvenye, Browne, Cramdon, Warde, Robenson [i2 poor 
scholars]. Very few of these men went on to the degree ol  B.A. 
Originally the fellows were the only members of the College. But as 
the College grew in size and the number of rooms increased, it was 
natural to let them out to other members of the University, or to 
wealthy clerg)'men and abbots who preferred living in University 
society to residing on their livings. This system of non-residence 
was very prevalent from the !Iiddle Ages down to the present 
century, notv¢ithstanding Acts of Parliament, the protests of the 
Puritans, and the efforts of Laud and others to check it. Gradually 
ordinary undergraduates were admitted as well. These sojouroers, or 
commoners, either had a table of their own, or dined x'ith the fellows 
at the High Table, the latter being called in later times fellow- 
commoners; they were ail called commensales, and ail had the regular 
commons or sveekly al|oxvance. Besides this each of the fellows xvas 
alloxved to introduce a poor scholar, or servitor, who waited on him, 
and had his food and education gratis or nearly so. Intermediate 
ranks occur. Thus the battellars were below the commoners but 
above the sertors, and did not have the fuli commons, but smaller 
allowances for xvhich they paid a special battels, i.e. account. It 
is a mere guess that the xvord battels means 'little bats,' i.e. the 
tallies or notched sticks on which the accounts xvere kept. One of 
these rallies still exists in a chest of the muniment room. The 
h 



xcviii HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 
distinction between these classes is marked by dae different amount 
of Caution money they paid. Thus a fellow-commoner paid in 1629 
£6, an ordinary commoner or sojourner £5, a battellar £4, a poor 
scholar £z. In the second Caution book 1686 poor scholars are 
raised to £3, and the figures 6, 5, 4, 3 altered, in a later hand, to 
8, 7, 6, 4; but £3 occurs as late as i7z6. A few were excused 
paying Caution altogether, and their names do not appear in dae 
Caution books at all. A poor scholar paid Bd a term for his cubick, 
while the rent of the better rooms was 2s 8d, while a Prior of Bodmin 
would pay 5 s, and a few rooms were even more expensive. A year's 
rent for one of the College schools was 6s Bd. A paper of uncertain 
date gives the Juramentum Commensalium, Battellariorum, et pau- 
perum Scholarium thus :-- 
You shall swear to maintain and defend the honesty and good fame 
of this College, as much as in you lyeth. 
You shall swear to be faithfull and true to this College in putting 
on or causing to be put on: whatsoever you shall take for the relief 
of your self or of any other ; and that you shall hOt by any means or 
ways seek the hurt or detriment of this CoLlege. 
You shall swear to observe and keep the ordinary exercise of this 
house appointed for you, or to endure and sustain the usual and 
ordinary punishments inflicted for your defaults ; neither shall you 
shew your self any ways untractable or unconformable to the good 
orders and discipline of dais College. 
James I sometimes sent mandates for the election of men to 
Fellowships, as in I6O 4 and 16o7: and he did dae same in most 
colleges. Thus at Iagdalen (State Papers io June 1604) ' he wishes, 
should Caple be rejected, to see the return of the votes, that he may 
proceed as he shall see cause,' and only desisted on a strong 
remonstrance. 
The plague was gdevous in i579, in Sep. I603, in I609, and in 
I625 when three FeLlows died, Iaynard, Lane, and H. Hide 1.

Some improvements were now ruade in the garden. Lent x566 ' xs

A house near Balliol was given them 6 Oct. 572 in exchange for their 
garden (near the School of Theology), adjoining the Exeter gardert ; 
the wall between the two gardens was pulled down, and £5 spent on 
a new wall (finished 2x June x573, Reg. 24 June) for the garden 
thus made square. Savage's Balliofergus 34-5, 79 'there is a deed 
to Exeter College for exchange of our land adjoining to that House 
for a house and garden lying near to ours, which house and garden 
must be upon part of the ground where Hammond's lodgings now 
stand, for it is set lying on the north part of the way leading from 
Balliol to Magdalene church, on the West part of the wall of Balliol, 
and therefore it extendeth itself further that way than now it does, riz. 
quite to the low wall end without; and on the east part of certain 
tenements belonging to Balliol. Exeter did covenant to pay a yearly 
rent of 2s 6d for ever to be issuing out of a tenement of Exeter in 
Magdalene parish, indenture dated 6 Oct. x 4 Eliz)' 
Among the eminent members of the College at this rime was Arthur 
Chichester, afterwards Lord Chichester of Belfast, so famous in Irish 
history. Prideaux says in the dedication (to Dr. Hakewill) of his sermon 
preached at the consecration of the Chapel 5 Oct. i624 ' It vas the 
Hele; Do. Collyer; Do. Battishill; I)o. Polwheele; I)o. Peeter; Chaffyn, qui

honour of my immediate predecessor Dr. Holland [see note in Fuller's 
Church Hisl. ed. Oxon il. 266], his Iajesty's Professor of Divinity 
and father of so many famous bishops and do¢tors, to be Rector here 
when Dr. Chetwynd and Dr. Z)aniel Price now Deans of Bristol and 
I Iereford, Dr. Carpenter, Dr. Fleminge, Dr. Winniffe, Dr. Whitcomb, 
Dr. Standard and Dr. Sampson Price (besides Drs. Vilvaine and 
taskerville known to be worthy physicians) laid those g-rounds which 
bave since attained that height which now the wofld takes notice of.' 
He then mentions 'Dr. William Helme his faithful and industrious 
Tutor, and those two religious and constant preachers Mr. W. Orford 
and Mr. Isaiah Farringdon who forgot us not when they left us, 
but so wrought on the pious dispositions of those excellent men 
Sir J. Acland and John Peryam Esq. that Exeter College by their 
bounty got a new Hall and lod#ngs of more charge and worth than 
all the former buildings.' A number of foreigners were trained under 
Prideaux himself, such as John Si#smund Cluverius, son of the 
geographer, and James and Frederick D'Orville, from Heidelberg 
(Clark i. 2î8, il. 346, iii. 351); besides men like James Casaubon, 
Secretary Spotfiswood, the Z)uke of Itamilton, &c. Sixtinus Amama 
the Dutch scholar, who taught Hebrew for 12 years in Oxford, speaks 
in high terres of Prideaux' management  in the preface to his edition 
of Drusius de Sectis Judaicis, Arnhemiae 1619- 
Prideaux was a thorough representative of his Unlversity and of his 
rime. On failing to become parish clerk of Ugborough in Devon, 
he came to College as a poor scholar and served 4 years as subpromus, 
belote he was chosen Fellow. In a Latin letter  addressed 6 May i6oo 
'to his assured fiind M r Reaullme Carter at the right Wor. S r John 
Perte his house in Aldersgate-streat in London,' he says that Lapthorne 
bas taken a parish and a wife, and asks Carter to speak favorably on 
his behalf to Sir John Perte, on whose lands in South Brent his family 
had long lived. He says his mother, a widow, ith ten children, 
could hOt help him. He was chosen I6oo, was Rector 612, Regius 
Professor of Z)ivinity i615-42, and became the leading theologian of 
the schoo! at Oxford which upheld the doctrine of the Reformers as 
against the new school represented by Laud. The doctrine of pre-

destination gave way to that of free will in the Protestant and Roman 
Catholic churches about the saine time, for of the two chief leaders of 
the new party, Arminius died at Leyden x 609, and lXIolina at lXladrid 
6ox. Prideaux was shocked when some of the new school main- 
tained that the Pope was not Antichrist. In 1576  the questions dis- 
cussed, .An sil purffalorium, .An sit orandum pro defunclis, An Spiritus 
Sanctus hominem fleccanlem, eleclum tamen, prorsus el omnino desera! 
lempore peccali are decided in the negative, and in 1605 it is affirmed 
that the Pope is Antichrist. But in 6o8 Laud answers affirmatively 
to such questions as .4n qMscopus lanlum flosst'l ordines con/erre. 
Selden (who was at Har! ttall 24 Oct. 6oo age 5), as representing 
the view of the school to which Falkland, Chillingworth, and Hales 
belonged, bas some strong remarks in his Table Talk  about Pre- 
destination and Prideaux's view, 'it is a point inaccessible, out of our 
reach; we can make no notion of it, 'tis so full of intricacy, so full of 
contradiction' ; his rernarks are even stronger against Laud's view of 
the divine right of bishops. 
Prideaux's lectures on theology were much admired. John Houghton 
(who matriculated Leyden 2 July 1632 ) writes to John Walker 20 July 
x 635 as a member of Exeter College s, , victum meum publica ibidem 
in aula cum aliis capiendo'; he goes to the Bodleian; Prideaux 
'Oxonii gloria, ecclesie lumen maximum, veritatis Anglicanae pro- 
punator summus' at the last comitia most learnedly refuted the 
errors of Socinus and others about the satisfaction of Christ. Prideaux 
was popular among the undergraduates, as we see by Shaftesbury's story 
given below. There vere naturally many stories afloat about Prideaux 
and his Fellows, as about later eminent heads of Colleges. On a blank 
page in an Oxford statute book of 1638 in the Church library at Crediton 
is the following, ' Dr. Prideaux is saying, the second lXlunday in July is 
Act-Munday duly.' One of the Fellows in Prideaux's time (Wood's 
Z ii. 399) 'sent his servitour after nine of the clock at night with 
a larg bottle, to fetch some aie from the alehouse. When he came 
home xvith it under his gowne, the proctor met him and ask'd him 
what he ruade out so late and what he had under his gowne. He 
answered that his master had sent him to the stationer's to borrow 
Bellarmine, and that it was Bellarmine that he had under his arme;

and so went home. Wherupon in following times, a bottle with 
a great belly was called a Bellarmine, as it is to this day, I677.' 
Two letters to Usher from Hakewili and Prideaux  may be given 
here :--

them to the utmost in your good Lordship's service; and more 
especially in the good education of that young gentleman (Ja. Dillon ) 
whom you were pleased to commend as a Jewel of price to my ca.re 
and trust; praising God that your Lordship hath been ruade his 
Instrument to reclaim him from the superstitions of the Romish 
Church, and wishing we had some more frequent Examples in that 
kind, in these cold and dangerous Times. For his tuition, I have 
l:,laced him in Exeter Colledg, with lXIr. ]3odley, a ]3atchelor of 
Divinity, and nephew to the great Sir Thomas ]3odley, of whose 
sobriety, gravity, piety, and every way sufficiency, I have had a long 
trial ; and (were he hOt so near me in I31ood) I could easily afford him 
a larger Testimony. He assures me, that he finds his scholar tractable 
and studious; so that such a Disposition, having met with such 
a Tutor to direct and instruct it, I make no doubt but it will produce 
an effect answerable to out expectation and desire: And during mine 
abode in the University, my self shall hOt be wanting to help it 
forward the best I may. Your Lordship shall do well to take order 
with his Friends, that he may have credit for the taking up of monies 
in London, for the defraying his Expenses ; for that to expect it from 
Ireland, will be troublesome and tedious. I wish I could write your 
Lordship any good news touching the present state of Affairs in this 
Kingdom ; but in truth, except it please God to put to his extraordinary 
helping hand, we have more reason to fear an utter downfal, than to 
hope for a rising. Thus heartily praying for your Lordship's Health 
and Happiness, I rest

HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. ciii 

Most Reverend Father in God ; 
Your letters were the more welcome unto me, in that they 
brought news of the publishing of your Ecclesiastical Antiquities, so 
much desired. In which the History of telagiu and 
foysting, being fully and impartially set, will put a period (I trust) 
to the troublesome Fancies which of late have been set on foot. 
The sight of such a Work would more revive my Simplicity than the 
tender of many Preferments so much sought after. Of your purpose 
of printing lgnatius here, I never heard. It had been little civility 
in me, hOt to have answered so gracious an Invitation. I ara loth 
to speak, but the truth is, our Oxford Presses are hOt for pieces of 
that Coin. We can print here Smigleciu the Jesuits Metaphysical 
Logick, and old John BurMane' Ploddings upon the Ethicks. But 
matters that entrench nearer upon true I)ivinity, must be more 
strictly overseen. I conceive it a high favour, that it pleased you 
to make use of my meanness for the placing of your Kinsman. 
I shall strain my best endeavours to make good your Undertakings 
to his Friends. Young Tutors ofientimes fail their Pupils, for 'ant 
of Experience and Authority, (to say nothing of Negligence and 
Ignorance). I have resolved therefore to make your Kinsman one 
of my peculiar, and tutor him wholly myself; vhich I bave ever 
continued to some especial Friends, ever since I have been Rector 
and Doctor. He billets in my Lodgings; hath (three) fcllow Pupils, 
which are Sons to Earls, together with his Country-man, the son of 
my Lord Caulfield; ail very civil, studious, and fit to go together. 
I trust, that God 'ill so bless our joint Endeavours, that his worthy 
Friends shall receive content, and have cause to thank your Grace. 
Whose Faithful Servant I remain,

Lent, and when he reached the psalms or the lessons would go up 
at once into the pulpit, omitting the rest of the service. In his 
sermon he frequently reviled some of his congregation in the presence 
of strangers whom he had invited to hear him and whom he asked to 
assist him in praying out the devils with which his own parishioners 
were possessed. He spoke of the clergy generally in disrespectful 
terres, and those of his own neighbourhood, Tretire in Herefordshire, 
he called idol shepherds, dumb dogs, and soul murderers. These 
charges were probably exaggerated, for though he was 9 Oct. 
634 deprived of his benefice and suspended from his ministry for 
a rime, yet before 9 lXlay 636 he received permission to continue 
his ministry anywhere but in the cure held by him at the rime of 
his deprivation. John Reynolds left books to Ex. Coll. (Fowler's 
Cor]us 65). John Flemmyng was chaplain to James I and became 
the first warden of Wadham. Thomas Winniffe chaplain to Prince 
Charles lost favour for speaking against Gondomar and Spinola when 
the Spaniards were overrunning the Palatinate, and was sent to the 
Tower 1. He and Prideaux however vere two of the divines of the old 
school who were ruade Bishops by Charles when he was endeavouring 
to conciliate the country gentlemen who had opposed Laud's and 
Strafford's revoludonary schemes. Prideaux had been reprimanded 
by Charles for speaking against the new Arminian doctrines in favour 
xvith Laud 2; but he, Winniffe, and others of the saine school were 
unhesitatingly loyal to the king in his troubles, and suffered much 
in the Civil War s. George Hakewill also was imprisoned for opposing

Nathanael Carpenter's Philosophia lïbera was an attack on the Aristo-

Earl of Pembroke, famous in connection with the questions about 
Shakspere's Sonnets; Philip Massinger, who was in his service, was

ii. 485 tells the following curious story about the Earl. ' A short story 
may not be unfitly inserted, it being very frequently mentioned by 
a person of known integrity, whose character is here undertaken to 
be set down, and who at that rime being on his way to London, met 
at Maidenhead some persons of quality, of relation or dependence 
upon the Earl of Pembroke (Sir Charles Morgan, commonly called 
General Morgan, who had commanded an army in Germany and 
defended Stoad, Dr. Field the bishop of S. Davids, and Dr. Chafin 
the Earl's then chaplain in his house and much in his favour). At 
supper one of them drank an health to the Lord Steward; upon 
which another of them said "that he believed his lord was at that 
time very merry, for he had now outlived the day which his tutor 
Sandford had prognosticated upon his nativity he would not outlive; 
but he had done it now, for that was his birthday which had com- 
pleated his age to fifty years." The next morning by the rime they 
came to Colcbrook, they met with the news of his death.' Several 
Fellows were members of the Assembly of Divines at Westminster , 
such as Matthias Styles and John Conant. Nathaniel Norrington was 
conspicuous in the controversy with the Remonstrants (Arminians} ; 
his epitaph in the Chapel ran thus: 'Ubi? hic, Quis? Remon- 
strantium malleus Norringtonus ; proh dolor ! sat est.' His tombstone 
is said to have become the hearthstone in the College kitchen. 
Another fcllow, William Hodges, had to make his submission in 
Convocation 63 for preaching against Arminianism in a sermon 
on Numbers xiv. 4 ' Let us make us a captain, and let us return into 
Egypt.' George Kendal was the author of Sanclt" Sancil[ (in answer 
to John Goodwin, the Independent writer), and other learned works

at Broadgate hall, under Digory Wheare's tuition, 18 gIay 599 age 
15, and Charles Fitz-Geoffrey, also of Broadgate hall, speaks highly 
of Pym--he afterwards preached the funeral sermon of Pym's mother, 
Bibi. Corn. 148. Hampden was at Magdalen 3 ° g(Ich i61o age 15. 
In i6i 2 the number of members at the College was 2o6 ; including, 
besides the Rector and Fellows, 134 commoners, 37 poor scholars, 
and i2 servitors. Exeter then stood fifth in point of numbers: 
Christ Church had 240, Magdalen 246, Brasenose 227, Queen's 267. 
The number in the whole University was 292o 1. The payments in 
16x 9 were £6 7 s to the Rector, £3 3 s 6dto each fellow . 
William Noye retained such regard for the eare bestowed on him 
that when the second Lord Petre tried to nominate to the Petrean 
fellowshipsuthough Sir William Petre had limited this right to himself 
and his son--and a lawsuit followed in which the College maintained 
its right to eleet under the Statures, Noye suceessfully and gratuitously 
supported the case of the College in the Court of Common Pleas. 
There is a portrait of him in the Hall. Edward Hyde, the famous 
Lord Clarendon, stood for one of the Sarum fellowships but unsuccess- 
fully. In an election to a Sarum fellow.hip x631 Thomas son of 
Humphry Hyde forged a certificate of birth in the diocese of Win- 
chester which imposed on Rector Prideaux, and he expelled ten fellows 
who voted for the rival candidate Goddard. On appeal to the Visitor 
the forgery was detected, the Fellows restored, and the Reetor repri- 
manded s. Another good friend Sir John Acland built the new Hall, 
-ith help from Sir John Peryam and others; and Peryam built the 
rooms vhich are now the Common-Room stairease. Aeland gave

feilowes of this House) I behaved myselfe too unscholarly and incivilly; 
trespassing thereby against morality, the good discipline of this 
Colledge, and my bounden esteeme of the society thereof, for all

cx tIISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

Anthony Ashley Cooper Earl of Shaftesbury was a member of 
Exeter College in 1637. His account of his college career is 
a curious contribution to the knowledge of University life in the 
seventeenth century !. ' I kept both horses and servants in Oxford, 
and was allowed what expense or recreation I desired, which liberty 
I never much abused; but it gave me the opportunity of obliging 
by entertainments the better sort, and supporting divers of the activest 
of the lower rank with giving them leave to eat, when in distress, 
upon my expense, it being no small honour among those sort of 
men that my naine in the buttery book willingly bore twice the 
expense of any in the University L This expense, my quality, pro- 
ficiency in learning, and natural affability easily hOt only obtained 
the good will of the wiser and elder sort but made me the leader 
even of all the rough young men of that college, and did then 
maintain in the schools coursing against Christ Church, the largest 
and most numerous college in the University s. 
' This coursing 4 was in older rimes, I believe, intended for a fair 

 Autobiography quoted in Christie's Zijê of Shaftesbury. 
 I doubt if this is literally the fact. In the Buttery Book for 2 June 1637

twice the usual amount, but Champemowney pays I3S Iod, and Bryan ISS 8d: the

triai of learning and skill in logic, metaphysics and school divinity, 
but for some ages that had been the least part of it, the dispute 
quickly ending in affronts, confusion, and vcry often blows, when 
they went most gravel), to work. They forbore striking, but making 
a great noise with their feet, they hissed, and shoved with their 
shoulders, and the stronger in that disorderly order &ove the other 
out before them; and, if the schools were above stairs, with ail 
violence hurrying the contrary party down, the proctors were forced 
either to give way to their violence or surfer in the throng. Nay the 
Vice Chancellor, though it seldom has begun when he was present, 
yet being begun, he bas somefimes unfortunately been so near as to 
be called in, and has been overcome in their fur), once up, in those 
adventures. I was often one of the disputants, and gave the sign and 
order for their beginning; but being hot strong of body was always 
guarded from violence by two or three of the sturdiest youths, as 
their chier, and one who always relieved them when in prison and 
procured their release, and very often was forced to pay the neigh- 
bouring farmers, when they of out party that wanted money vere 
taken in the fact, for more geese turkies and poultry than eithcr they 
had stole or he had lost ; it being very fait dealing if he ruade the 
scholar, when taken, pay no more than he had lost since his last 
reimbursement. Two things I had also a principal hand in when 
I vas at the College, the one, I caused that ill custom of tucking 
freshmen to be left off; the other, when thê senior fellows designed 
to alter the beer of the college, which was stronger than other 
colleges, I hindered their design. This had put ail the younger sort 
into a mutiny; they resorting to me. I advised all those were intended 
by their friends to get their livelihood by their studies, to test quiet and 
hot appear, and that myself and ail the others that were elder brothers 
or unconcerned in their angers, should go in a body and strike our 
names off the buttery book, which was accordingly done, and had 
the effect that the senior fellows, seeing their pul:,ils going that yielded 
them most profit, presently struck sail and articled 'ith us never to 
aiter the size of out beer, 'hich remains so to this day.

while the Vice-chancellor was witnessing a tragedy acted by the 
scholars of S. John's, there was a disturbance in which John Gage 
(? Gaye) and William Betenson, commoners of Exeter, among others 
took part. They were forced to ask forgiveness 'on their bended 
knees in the north chapel of S. lXlary's, promising vith weeping 
tears that they would never do anything hereafter against the peace 
of the academyt. ' The colleges x'ere fond of getting up plays. 
William Gager, of Christ Church (Tanner 3o3, State Papers Addenda 
July 1575 p. 487, Nat. Biog.) had a controvers), with John Rainolds 
president of Corpus in defence of the lawfulness of plays. In Lent 
1548 ve find that ' 6s 8d was paid for the expenses of acting a comedy 
in public'; Lent 55I 'Ss 3 d was paid to Dolye who painted what 
was needed for acting comedies, and 18s 7 d for repairs in Lord's 
bouse and the expenses in acting comedies.' In 1637 the College 
presented a comedy to the University (lcmz'nisc«nces of O.)6rd, 
O. H. S., p. 2o). The College contributed to our great group of 
dramatists one eminent naine, John Ford, whom Charles Lamb praises 
so highly. 
In 16 3 the Vice-Chancellor Dr. Piers directed certain orders to 
the College (Unir. Archives box P, fascic. 5, no. 7). 
The Romanist controversy caused some bitterness at this rime. 
In John Gee's 'ool out of lhe Snare 1624, among 'the names of 
Romish priests and Jesuites now resident about the City of London 
6 1Ich I64' occur 'Father Bastin, sometime butler of Exon 
Colledge in Oxon. He was turned out of his place for cutting 
twenty pounds off from a brever's score and coozening the Colledge 
contrarie to his oath; Father Edwards, sometime of Exon Colledge 
in Oxon. He vent thence ith a wench in man's appareil, but belike 
since a sanctified man.'

In 1636 Charles I visited Oxford, when William Herbert of Exeter 
College made a speech. The College paid £32 6s Bd towards the 
expenses of the royal visit (Evelyn's Diary i. 662). The king had 
for some time planned the foundation of fellowships for the benefit 
of the Channel Islands, to be held at Exeter, Jesus, and Pembroke, 
and the fellowships were first filled up in this year 
When the Civil War approached, Prideaux the Vice-chancellor 
abruptly left the University about 24 June 1642 without properly 
resigning office, and Convocation ruade Dr. Robert Pink of New 
College Pro-Vicechancellor (Wood's Life i. 52). Oxford became the 
king's head-quarters, many students joined the army, and the work 
of education was suspended. The College plate offered the king 
a ready resource for the war. Lord Say had let the Colleges keep 
their plate on condition that it should hOt be employed against the 
Parliament (Wood's Z i. 64). The Colleges, considering themselves 
as trustees of the plate, at first hoped to buy themselves off with ready 
money; thus Exeter presented the king with J3IO, of which £138 
had to be borrowed, but the king's needs were too pressing and he 
took the plate as well, on a promise of repayment: it was valued 
at £75 o, the pound weight of silver plate being reckoned as worth 
J3, and of gilt plate somewhat more. This of course allowed nothing

I2. What summ of monies, for what, and by whome, there hath

Wood adds, 'All which questions being proposed by one of the 
Visitors (which they framed from the uncharitable information of 
John Martin, Robert Hancock, and others of Exeter College, that 
were Delegates appointed by the Visitors), lI r Tozer desired rime 
to give in his answer ; on 27 ]Ich Ir Tozer answered, Those queries

being taken as a frivolous answer, and not at all pertinent to the 
Quefies, lIr Tozer was condemned as guilty of high contempt. On

consent of the Commissioners, expunged the name of Poingdexter, and 
entred Fiot, commanding the Subrector to give him possession of 
a chamber and ail emoluments belonging to his place: but he refused 
so to do. On 2 9 June they sent for lXIr Tozer and forbad him to 
meddle with an), Election of Scholars (which by Statute was to be 
the next day) and to disenable him in that and other matters, tumed 
him out of his fellowship and then sent him to prison because he 
would not deliver up to them the College Books and Keys, which 
without perjury he could not do, nor had they any title to pretend 
to them, no new Head being put in there. Concerning this matter 
I find a farther account, the Subrector refusing to deliver up the 
Keys and the Iooks xvas imprisoned by the Governour, x'ho sent 
a guard of musqueteers to his chamber door, where they continued 
to prevent the fetching out of any of the said ]3ooks, &c. And 
another guard was set at the Chappel door, where they continued till 
the Election day was past, to prevent the Election, in x'hich rime they 
took out of the Chappel ail the Common Prayer Books which were 
there, and eut the Common Prayer out of such Bibles and Testaments 
as they round there. But two days after M r Tozer was released from 
prison, condifionally that the Keys and Books which he had refused 
to give up, should hOt be conveyed out of the College.' 
]3y an order of 2t Mch t64] the College debts were to be paid 
by hot filling up the fellowships of Willett and Gealard, and by 
suspending four more fellowships as they should fall vacant, till the 
debts were safisfied. The newly-appointed fellows x'ere to take 
seniority according to the date of their degrees. There is an 
indignant account of the Visitation, from the royalist point of view, 
in Thomas Barlow's 'Pegasus, or the Flying Horse from Oxford. 
Being the proceedings of the Visitors and other Bedlamites there, 
by command of the Earle of Mongomery. Pfinted at Mongomety, 
heretofore called Oxford.' Its tone may be guessed from the opening 
sentences. 'Tuesday Aprill the eleventh, the long-legged peece of 
impertinency which they miscall Chancellor was to be brought x-ith 
state into Oxon ; to this end, these few inconsiderable and ill fac'd 
saints hired all the hackneyes in towne (which were basely bad, yet

hee swore at them, and they said grace at him ; how many zealous 
faces and iii leggs they ruade, and at xs.hat distance, I know hot; 
a long rime they were about it.' Wood gives a full accourir of the 
Visitation. 
The Colleges were much impoverished. On 3 hIch 1649 John 
lIaudit subrector of Exeter College petitions, ' that the College is 
greatley distressed for vant of the arrears due from some of the 
tenants, and especially Simmons of Hamborough and Dr Parsons 
principal of Hart Hall ; and God having provided a redress by Parlia- 
ment order, by application to this Committee, they beg a summons 
to Simmons and Parsons, to show cause for hot paying their rents 17 
On 19 Jan. I64, î- there is a petition about the Channel Island 
fellowships at Exeter, Jesus, and Pembroke, stating that the Com- 
mittee for the King's Revenues had stopped the payments due from 
the London tenants, as taking them for part of the King's Revenues. 
As this was a mistake, and contrary to the Articles of the Surrender 
of Oxford, the Committee order the tenants to pay. 
Dr. Hakewill was so much respected that no Rector was elected till 
he died, then John Conant was chosen by the new fellows 2. Conant 
was a good scholar and such a toaster of Greek that he many times 
disputed publicly in the schools in that language. Prideaux once said 
of him ConanN m'hil difficile. He vas also a good oriental scholar, 
lnowing Chaldee, Syriac, and Arabic as well as Hebrew. He quitted 
the College in I642 but, hoping peace might be ruade, left his books 
behind him and they were ail stolen. Books were by no means safe 
at Oxford during the Civil War. When Sir Thomas Fairfax recovered 
Oxford he took much pains in restoring the 13odleian Library, x'hich 
had suffered during the Cavalier regime. Conant served a cure 
sometime at Lymington in Somerset and then at S. Botolph's Alders- 
gare, aftelvards he lived several years as chaplain to Lord Chandos at 
Harefield near Uxbridge in Iiddlesex at a salary of fourscore pounds, 
most of xvhich he gave away. He resigned his fellowship in 1647 
from conscientious scruples about the Visitation of Oxford by the 
Parliamentary Commissioners. But the fellows having suffered from

cxxii HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

the non-residence of the Rector pressed Conant to take the Rector- 
ship, knowing that he would reside. The headship was valued by 
the Commissioners at £45 in 1649. Conant was a leader of 
the Presbyterian as opposed to the Independent party in the 
University . He soon restored the system for which the College 
had been famous under Holland and Prideaux and the numbers 
increased to two hundred and upwards . 'Once a week he had 
a Catechetical lecture in the chapel in which he went over Piscator's 
Aphorisms and Woollebius' Compendium Theologiae Christianae 
(Basle 638); and by the way faidy propounded the principal 
objections made by the Papists, Socinians, and others against 
the orthodox doctrine, in terres suited to the understanding and 
capacity of the younger scholars. He took care likewise that the 
inferior servants of the College should be instructed in the principles 
of the Christian reli#on and would sometimes catechise them in 
his own lodgings. He looked strictly himself to the keeping up 
all exercises and would often slip into the hall in the midst of their 
lectures and disputations. He would always oblige both opponents 
and respondents to corne well prepared and perform their respective 
parts agreeably to the strict law of disputation. Here he would often 
interpose, either adding new force to the arguments of the opponent 
or more fulness to the answers of the respondent, and supplying 
where anything seemed defective or clearing where anything was 
obscure in what the moderator subjoined. He would often go into 
the chambers and studies of the young scholars, observe what books 
they were reading, and reprove them if he found them turlfing

A true love of learning and a good share of it in a person of untainted 
morals and low circumstances a were sure of his patronage and 
encouragement. He would constantly look over the observator's roll 
and buttery book himself, and whoever had been absent from the 
chapel prayers or extravagant in his expenses or otherwise faulty was 
sure he must atone for his fault by some such exercise as the Rector 
should think fit to set him, for he was no friend to pecuniary mulcts, 
vhich too often punish the father instead of the son. The students 
were many more than could be lodged within the walls, they crowded 
in here from all parts of the nation and some from beyond the 
sea. On his receiving the insignia of the office of Vice-chancellor 
there was such a universal shout of a very full convocation as has 
hardly ever been known. The first Lent he ruade a surprising reform 
in their public disputations which for some years had been managed 
with such vehemency and disorder as had created several unhappy 
divisions in the University. The antipathy of his predecessor Dr. 
Owen to caps and hoods and his attempt for taking them away 
as Popish relies xvill not soon be forgotten. But he could never 
effect it, being opposed by man), of the University, and among others 
by Dr. Conant, 'ho could never discern any shadow of hurt in these 
decent habits, or any more of Popery in these distinctions of degrees 
than in the degrees themselves. He opposed Cromwell's plan of 
giving the College at Durham the privileges of a University, setting 
forth the advantages of large Universities and the dangers which 
threaten religion and learning by multiplying small and petty acade- 
mies. He was instrumental in moving Mr. Selden's executors to 
bestow his prodigious collection of books, more than 8000 volumes, 
on the University.' In this period of Puritan ascendancy the di.puta-

those who advocated the Restoration, and was appointed one of 
the Cmmittee which met at the Savoy to revise the Book of Common 
Frayer. But when no alteration in the ceremonies was allowed 
he felt it his conscientious duty to give up the Rectorship. Yet 
he refused to lead a party in the separation, and in fact had so little 
real objection to the Frayer ]3ook that he soon after conformed, 
and was even reordained priest 2o Sep. 1670 (though he had been 
previously ordained at Salisbury 28 Oct. I652), and was instituted 
Vicar of Ail Saints in Northampton 5 Feb. 167, ° on the presentation 
of the Corporation. When most of lqorthampton perished in the 
disastrous tire of 2o Sep. 1673 the neighbouring gentry paid him 
his salary of  IOO for that year which his parishioners were hot able 
to raise. John Robartes Earl of Radnor, who had been his con- 
temporary at College, asked a prebend of Worcester for him of Charles 
II with the words ' Sir, I corne to beg a preferment of you for a very 
deserving man, who did never beg anything for himself.' In his 
declining age he could scarce be prevailed upon by his physician 
to drink now and then a little wine. He slept ver)' little, haing been 
an assiduous and indefatigable student for above threescore years 
together. Whilst his strength would bear it, he often sat up in 
his study till late at night, and thither he returned very early in 
the morning. An eminent and early instance of Dr. Conant's con- 
tempt of the world was his passing over to his younger and only 
brother then living (who married young, had many children, and was 
hot so well provided for) his interest in an estate left him by his father, 
when he had but little more to live upon himself than his fellowship. 
He was highly esteemed by Bishop ]3ull and Archbishop Tillotson x 
']ïxeter College flourished much under his government. In his 
time it afforded a Vice-chancellor, a Froctor, a I)octor of the Chair in 
Divinity, a Moral Philosophy and Rhetoric Reader to the University, 
a President of S. John's, a Principal to Jesus, and a Divinity Professor 
to lXlagdalen Cllege ; hOt to mention such as were transplanted 
thence to scholarships and fellowhips in other colleges, many of 
whom were men of eminency afterwards.' Some of these names are

College, in his book called ' The Sufferings of the Clergy in 
the Great Rebellion,' to justify the ejection by showing how many 
royalist clergy had been ejected previously, so that the Act of 662 
might be considered a sort of legitimate revenge. But the episcopa-

fairly when the bishops used their influence in Parliament to prevent 
any toleration. The king himself complained of their conduct. The 
result of their action was disastrous, and Ken, grieving at the orgies 
of the Restoration, sadly anticipated some new visitation of God's 
wmthl. The new Rector Joseph gIaynard, brother of Sir John 
.M;nard, held office less than four years; Wood says of him (L 
i. 455, il. 56), 'Exeter College is now (I665) much debauched by 
a drunken governor; whereas before in D r Conant's time it was 
accounted a civil house, it is now rude and incivil; not respecting

rector is goodnatured, generous, and a good scholar; but he has 
forgot the way of a coIlege lire, and the decorum of a scholar. He is 
given much to bibbing; and, when there is a music-meeting in one of 
the fellows' chambers, he will sit there, smoke, and drink till he

 On 9 Ang. I665 Joseph iXlaynard rector, John Heame sub-rector, William 
Painter dean, of Exeter College, signed the permission for Wood to peruse the 
muniments and records of that college. ' On 24 Ang. he began to peruse the 
evidences. These are *vell ordered, and methodically digested, and are reposed 
in a lower rome neare to thê gatehouse looking northwards. They were taken 
out of the said roome and carr:,ed to the lodgings of the rector of that collêge 
called Dr. Joseph Maynard, and in his dining roome A. W. perused them in 4 or 
5 dayes ; in which rime the said doctor was exceeding civil to him. This Dr. was 
an old standard, had ranch of a true English temper in him, was void of 
dissimulation and snêaking politicks, and at leisure rimes he would entertaine A. W. 
with old stories relating to the universitie and the leamed men of his rime. He 
also then perused some of the registers. On Aug. z 9 he began to peruse the 
catalogue of fellowes of Exeter Coll. which is reposed in the library there, and

Ayliffe ii. 243 quotes two cases of attempts to check the claims of 
privilege during this century. In i628 Fryer v. Dews (in the King's 
Bench), 'Dews, being sued, prayed his privilege, because at the time 
of the suit commenced he was a commoner in Exeter College in 
Oxford, and brought letters under the seal of the Chancellor certifying 
their privilege : and he certified that Dews was a commoner of Exeter 
College, as appeared by the certificate of Dr. Prideaux, Rector of the 
College; whereas he ought to have certified, that he was upon 
his ovvn knoxvledge a commoner of the said college, and hot upon the 
certificate of another: and afterwards a certificate was ruade of his 
own knowledge, and then it was allowed to be good.' Was this 
Thomas Dewe, pleb. of Oxford, xvho matriculated 3 Dec. 65 
age  6 ? 
P, gain in 674, 'Prat being plaintiff exhibited a bill in Chancery 
against the defendant Taylour, to have an account of several sums 
of money, which the defendant, a fellow of Exeter College, and 
a tutor to the plaintiff's son, received towards the necessary occasions 
of his son. The Chancellor by an instrument in writing set forth the 
privilege of the University granted by Charters and confirmed by Act 
of Parliament: and the defendant was a scholar and resident in 
the University. and that they had a Court of Equity, and thereupon 
prayed that Taylour might be dismissed. But the Lord Keeper 
did hOt allow the claim, for that cognizance of pleas in Equity could 
hot be granted, tho' precedents ere shewn of the saine claire 
allowed in Queen Elizabeth's rime. He asked whether any could 
be shewn in my Lord Ellesmere's or my Lord Coventry's rime; but 
none could be shewn; and thereupon he disallowed the daim and 
said that it must be put in by way of Plea : but withal declared that 
it should not be on oath, but it should be suflïcient to aver the 
defendant to be a scholar resident within the University.' Was 
this Isaac Tayler B.A. 19 June 666, M.A. z 7 P,p. I6697; he was 
not a fellow. 
A rather curious notice occurs Reg. 9 Dec. i668 'decretum

Lethbridge, Huchinge, Archer, Cleaveland, Adams, Thorn to appear before him 
on 2I Meh when the Rector and three others entered a protest (but Hutchins and 
Cleaveland did hOt agree in it against the Visitation, and so again on the 25

summoned all to appear before him on I6 June, when the great gate was shut 
against him, but he entered another way, and on the Rector presenting a fresh 
protest snatched it from him and trod it under foot. The Visitor appealed 
to the Privy Cotmcil against the College for contempt of his jurisdiction. At the 
election of 30 Jtme I69o the Rector, Subrector, Hearn, Lethbridge, Archer, 
Adams, Thom, Crabb, Vivian, 13onamy, and Kingston elected John Vivian in 
Colmer's place; Hutchins and Ratclitï voted for him conditionally' if his place 
v¢ere vacant'; Cleaveland, Rend, Harris, 13agwdl, Maundrel, Webber, and Lever 
denied that there was any vacancy. The Visitor came again 24 July and another 
attempt was ruade to shut the gare against him. On the 2$th he suspended iI 
Yellows for three months for cottumacy, and afterwards excommunicated 
Kingston. On the 26th he expelled the Rector and ordered him to give up the 
management to the Senior Yeilow on pain of the greater excommunication. The 
non-suspended Fellows elected William Paynter Rector I5 Aug. I69o , who took 
the oath in December. The case then came before the King's Bench, which on

on a charge of incontinence, but the evidence was so worthless 
that the Vice-chancellor disallowed it, and the Visitor Jonathan 
Trelawney bishop of ]Sxeter ordered Colmer to be restored. The 
Rector again crossed Colmer's naine out of the books, and on this 
the bishop held a formal Visitation of the College, when the Rector

Bury and the fellows who joined him in opposing the Visitation, 
and William Paynter was elected Rector in his stead, but it was four 
years before the case was finally settled on appeal to the House of

He had sold the place of cook to Robert Harding for £5o, and 
received £5 ° from Hedges the next cook that Harding might resign 
in his favour. He had also sold the place of hurler to William 
New for £i 7o. The Rector's answer denies most of the statements 1, 
and there is so much cross-swearing among the xvitnesses that 
itis difficult to make out the real state of the case about Colmer, 
but Bury's conduct had been very arbitrary. The main circum- 
stance in Colmer's favour is that he was supported by two of the 
fellows Ezra Cleaveland and Henry Maundrell, who were men of 
high character. Colmer states that Thomas Kingston the chaplain 
xvho supported Bury ' is regstered in Mr. Dangerfield's Diary as 
one of his singular friends and companions.' But probably what 
told most against Bury was his having published in I69O The 
l'aked Gospel, for which he was ultimately charged with Socinianism , 
and the book itself was ordered by the University, 19 Aug. 69o, 
to be burnt. ]3ury published a new edition xvith alterations and 
explanations, but could not get a hearing. He anticipated the view 
of Locke, that the fundamental points of religion were few and 
simple, and that the main part of the existing theology was an accre- 
tion from the rime of the Middle Ages : if we returned to the primitive 
doctrine, there would be more hope of union among Christians: 
he appealed to such texts as Acts xx. 20, ' I kept back nothing 
that was profitable unto )'ou, but bave shewed you, and have taught 
you publickly and from house to bouse, testifying both to the Jews 
and also to the Greeks, Repentance towards God, and Faith towards 
out Lord Jesus Christ.' Bury's case was thought one of some hard- 
ship and there xvas a debate on it in the House of Lords, but 
ultimately Paynter was confirmed in the place of Rector. Bury was 
Reetor during James ll's reign, when--perhaps as part of the king's

The list of Nonjurors in Kettlewell's l'ail, App. p. xii, shows few 
names at Oxford, only about a couple of dozen, for most of the 
Jacobites took the oath to the new king and then conspired against 
him. Thomas Polwhele, fellow in 664 and V. of Newlyn, vas 
one of the two nonjuring incumbents in Cornwall : the other was also 
an Exeter Coll. man, James Beauford of Lanteglos by Carnelford. At 
the election in  î  9 Betty, Bartlett and Eastway had equal rotes u-ith 
lhilip Hicks, George Snell and William Hume, and Dr. Robert 
Shippen the Vice-chancellor, a well-known Jacobite, selected the three 
former ; but Bartlett and East'ay were rejected 6 July  720, at the 
end of their year of probation, for disaffecfion and drinking the 
lretender's health 1.

applicable to many a man (Cluent. § 72) Ea z,ilia quae a natura hale- 
rai, eliam studio arque art«ficio quodam malih'ae condiv[sseL Dean 
Prideaux i speaks of Exeter College as worse than Christ Church, 
' nothing but drinking and duncery,' ' Exeter College is totall2¢ spoiled 
and so is Christ Church.' The Solitau¢ in 'om Jones who relates his 
history to the hero describes himself as having been at Exeter, 
but perhaps only as being a western man : the story however is hOt 
a flattering one. The humorous notices of Oxford in the Spectator 
ail point the same way. We bave the evidence of Swift, Defoe, Gray, 
Gibbon, Johnson, John XVesley, Lord Chesterfield and Lord Eldon 
all agreeing in this point, that both the great Universities were 
neglectful and ineflïcient in the performance of their proper work  : 
Lord Eldon and Vicesimus Knox agree in stating that the examinations 
had long been a fiction, and this may bave led to Adam Smith's view 
of the uselessness of endowments for promoting real knowledge. 
Chesterfield says of Carteret lord Granville ' he degraded himself by 
the vice of drinking which, together with a great stock of Greek 
and Latin, he brought away -ith him from Oxford'; his devotion 
to Greek and Latin was his own. Clarendon makes one of the 
speakers in his Discourse concerning Leducation complain of the great 
schools for sending up ' lubberly fellows, after they are 19 or 2o years 
of age, who bring their debauchery with them.' 
It was during this rime that the Librar), was burnt down 2 Dec. 1709. 
Hearne says in his diary (ii. 318, 320, 33o), ' This morning, ,¢ery 
earl2¢, began a fire in the scrape-trencher's (quadrae sculptricis) room 
of Exeter College. This room being adjoyning to their Library, 
all the innerpart of the library was quite destroyed, and only one stall 
of books, or thereabouts, secured. The vdnd being low, and there 
being good assistance, it was extinguished by eight o'clock, otherwise 
it might ha,e burnt the public library, 'hich is hOt many yards distant 
from it, on the east side. This library was formerl2¢ the college

number of instances that are given in miscellaneous discourses of

dreams, yet he cannot but here observe two ¢onsiderable accidents 
that happened to himself. The night in which the tire broke out at 
Exeter College he had litfle s]eep, being strangely disturbed with the 
apprehensions of tire, which seemed to him to be so near as to corne 
to the hall (Edmund hall) and to catch the upper part of it. This 
apprehension ¢ontinued violent, and he had only a sort of an inter- 
rupted broken sleep, fil] such rime as he was called up to go to look 
after the library.' As the wind was west, it may have blown the 
smoke to Edmund Hall, and if Hearne's window was open and the 
smoke reached his nostrils during his sleep, if might account for his 
dream. The librarv was soon after refurnished. ]3ut in i778 it was 
taken down and rebuilt, the College having received' in i774 a large 
accession of MSS. and printed books by the benefacfions of Edward 
Richards Esqre and Joseph Sanford B.D., sometime members of this 
House, and the latter afterwards fellow of Balliol (Reliquiae Hearnianae 
i6 Mch I72-, see Coxe). 
A considerable improvement was effected in the College by John 
Conybeare and some newly elected Fellows. Conybeare, e]ected in 
x  io, was tutor to Archbishop Secker and to Chancellor Talbot's sons. 
In I73 z he published an answer to Matthew Tindal's Chrislian[l 3, as 
old as lhe Creation (Matthew Tindal and his nephew Nicholas were 
both at Exeter College). Conybeare's answer vas higb.ly appreciated 
by his contêmporaries, and Lechler the German historian of English 
Deism expresses his admiration of it . In I35 he published 
'Calumny refuted, an answer to the personal slander of Dr. Richard 
Newton.' Newton had become Principal of Hart Hall in 17Io and 
had procured an act of parliament for converting it into Hertford 
College s. He now maintained that Hart Hall had always been really 
independent of Exeter College; and Dr. Hole the Rector of Exeter, 
who was a weak man *, gave him free access to the muniment room

to consult the old documents. Corybeare thought that Newton on 
this occasion removed the early documents about Hart Hall, which 
are now missing. Newton was more honourably distinguished by his 
effort to diminish the expenses of a University career (Brodrick 135), 
for which he was ruade the subject of many jokes by the Terrae Fihus, 
Nicholas Amhurst, afterwards so well known as editor of Bolingbroke's 
journal ' The Craftsman.' When poor Newton said that ' he supped 
in the Refectory and neither varied the meat nor exceeded the pro- 
portion set before the lowest commoner,' Amhurst notes ' This part is 
liable to dispute. I will only put you in mind of the late instance of 
la,sE and BAco. You remember what you said, upon that occasion, 
riz. Is such diet as this to descend to the populace.' 
Conybeare became Rector of Exeter i73o , after Hole's death, 
and his exertions in the restoration of discipline and learning recom- 
mended him to the Crown, which appointed him Dean of Christ 
Church I733, 'to cleanse out that Augean stable.' In 735 West 
writes to Gray from Christ Church 'a country flowing with syllogisms 
and aie, where Horace and ¥irgil are equally unknown 1., At Exeter 
Conybeare put a stop to the habit of selling the servants' places*, and 
restored the long neglected lectures. An account of his reforms is 
printed from the College Register below a. 1733, and later regulafions 
a. 739. Hearne however, who always means a Jacobite when he 
speaks of 'an honest man,' speaks disparagingly of Conybeare, xvho 
was by no means a Jacobite. Sir John Saint Aubyn, a leading 
Jacobite in the Commons, was of Exeter College. Walpole said of 
him,'All these men bave their price except the little Cornish baronet,' 
and on Walpole's disgrace Sir John was a member of the committee 

 Mason's Gray 182o p. Io (17 Gray's opinion of Cambridge). 
2 On 2 May 1746 Alexandcr ShLlfox the cook died, and the office was continned 
to his wife for three years for the benefit ofhis orphan children ; and 6 Sep. 1748 
given to the eldest son Alexander, who was removed for misbehaviour 8 Nov. 1754, 
and Robert Cnrtis appointed by the Rector and seven Senior Fellows. On I4 Ap. 
x76I 'were appointed by the Rector and seven Seniors, Charles Curtis and Ann 
Homer widow jointly to the office of 'romus, Charles Cnrtis appointed by the 
Rector Surveyor of the buildiags, Ann Horner Tonsor' ; for the intervention of the 
seven Seniors in appointing servants, see a. 1733. Charles Curtis proved dishonest,

appointed to inquire into his conduct. Faction was still strong in 
Oxford. In  7 x9 there was a disputed election in the College and 
three Jacobite candidates had an equal number of votes with three 
others. Dr. Robert Shippen the Vicechancellor a well-known Jacobite 
selected the three candidates of his own party. Two of them 
however, William Bartlett and Richard Eastway, were dismissed the 
next year for disaffection and drinking the Pretender's health. We 
have a rather pathetic Complaz'nt in  754 by rector Bray against the 
members of Trinity, then a Jacobite College, for grossly insulting him, 
breaking the College windows several times, and behaving in a very 
ungentlemanly way. The authorities of S. John's in a similar case 
had ruade reparation, but the president of Trinity, George Huddesford, 
although Vice-chancellor, had refused to listen to what he called 
' personal complaints.' The high character of Ken and a few others 
bas shed a lustre over the Nonjurors and Jacobites, but Johnson had 
a low opinion of the Nonjurors, and the Jacobite chiefs in Oxford 
had hOt only notoriously perjured themselves, by taking the oath to 
the new dynasty, but had largely contributed to injure the morality and 
discipline of the place. Their ablest man, William King, principal 
of S. 3Iary Hall, wrote obscene poems, notorious even in that un- 
scrupulous age. Perhaps the last occasion on which the Jacobite 
feeling was strongly displayed was in  755 when the County election 
was held in Broad street. The Tory and Jacobite party guarded the 
approaches to the polling booths and prevented the Whigs from 
coming to vote. Some 'Queries' published on the occasion ask, 
' Did hOt the Old Interest mob, on the morning of the first day of the 
Poli, seize every access to the front of the booths, and guard it almost 
twenty men deep ? Was not the same done, early, every succeeding 
day of the Poli ?' The Whig voters however passed through Exeter, 
and got to the booths. On this Vice-chancellor Huddesford ruade 
some remarks in Convocation on ' the infamous behaviour of one 
College,' which led to a series of Pamphlets. Wadham, ]Ierton, 
Exeter and Christchurch were the four Whig Colleges 1. The acces- 
sion of George III however ended Jacobitism. They changed the 
idol, says Burke, but preserved the idolatry.

two new fellowships for Herts and Surrey, though it was hot until

A letter from Walter Kerrick to Edward Weston, dated Uxbridge, 
8 June I767 (Hist. Comm. I885, p. 406) gives an interesting picture 
of a pupil being introduced to his tutor. ' I take the first opportunity 
of informing you that I have settled my friend Stephen Weston at 
E.xeter College. His naine was put into the Books on Monday night. 
Dr. Kennicott was at his villa about 7 mlles from Oxford, but he re- 
turned to College on Tuesday, and we had the honor of drinking tea 
vith him and Mr. Stinton Mr. Weston's tutor. He is reckoned a very 
sagacious gond tutor, and I conclude from the fullness of the College 
that the character I heard of him is a just one. They found a diffi- 
culty in accommodating Mr. Weston with a room. The income to it 
was only 4 Pound, and I think a little papering and a few more chairs 
will make it ver)- neat and commodious. The young man seemed to 
like his destination very well and, from my knowledge of him and his 
conversation, I must promise myself everything that is gond from him. 
It would be injustice to him hOt to acquaint you with what Mr. Stinton 
told me ; He said, after overhawling him, that he found him an admir- 
able scholar. If the little I have done in conducting my cousin to 
Oxford is agreable to I)ear Mr. Weston, it will be the highest pleasure 
to him who has the honor' &c. 
The question about rooms was always a difficult one. On 3 o June 
x76x 'it was decreed that whoever is permitted to take a chamber 
shall continue to be tenant of that chamber and pay the rent, unless 
he obtains leave to rnove into another chamber that may become

vacant and untenanted ; and tho' he should be permitted to retire into 
the country in vacation times, yet he shall not be permitted to throw 
up his room under colour of renting a garret, but shall go on paying 
his quarterly rent for the room he had taken, in the saine manner as 
if he were personally resident in College.' 
Matriculation Examinations only began in 1827, and at Oriel and 
Balliol only. The Final Examinations in the last century were a 
farce; Lord Eldon humorously describes the two questions asked 
him viz. What is the meaning of Golgotha ? and Who founded 
University College? Scholars were looked down on, and hardly 
regarded as gentlemen by the regular commoners i 
John Wesley's father Samuel had been at Exeter College ; and one 
of the fellows, Thomas Broughton, had already corne under Wesley's 
influence in 1732 , before his election, and was in 1743 secretary of the 
Society for promoting Christian Knowledge. George Thomson V. of 
S. Gennys is referred to in Doddridge's Z of Colonel Gardiner, as 
the second remarkable instance of conversion : and Samuel Walker of 
Truro was a name known far and wide in Evangelical circles. Some of 
the later fellows also belonged to the evangelical school, such as John 
David Macbride. 
It has been remarked that the revival of religious feeling in the i8th 
and 19th followed the same course as in the i6th and iTth centuries. 
First came the renewed sense of personal relation to God, among the 
Reformers; then the idea of church authority among the Caroline 
divines, then the Latitudinarian movement. Similarly the Evangelical 
revival of the last century led to the High Church and ]3road Church 
phases of thought. But there is a danger in drawing sharp lines, and 
when it is said that the Evangelical party declined and the High 
Çhurch took their place, it is hot really meant that spiritual and 
personal religion declined, but that its activity took another form ; 
the young men who in the previous generation would have followed 
the lead of Simeon, now followed the lead of Keble and Newman. 
The essential feelings co-existed in all three periods, but in different 
proportions and relations. Such constituent elements of religion tend

to clear themselves gradually of the accretions that have grown up 
under the influence of successive schools of thought. And, again, the 
movement of I833 vas hot a sudden revolution. The 'ay had been 
prepared by the steady efforts of the Evangelical, High Church and 
Liberal parties in the church, to restore religious feeling; efforts 
that already showed a marked success, which those who write about 
the new movement are apt to suppress or minimise. When that 
movement t gave a new direction to the acti-ity of the English church, 
Exeter contributed several men of mark to its ranks, such as J. B. 
lIorris, Upton Richards, J. D. Dalgairns, W. Lockhart (whose seces- 
sion caused Newman such trouble at Littlemore ); but of these the 
ablest man was William Sewell 3. He did much to raise the intellectual 
tone of the College, was a many-sided man, and the earliest advocate 
of University Extension 4. His pamphlet S'uggestionsfor the Extension 
of Um'versily 'aching 1850 states his object as ' the diminution of the 
expenses of education, its extension in the best form--that form which 
the Universities alone are capable of supplying--its expansion to its 
utmost limits, so that it may embrace the whole kingdom, not even 
excluding the most distant colonies. Though it may be impossible fo 
bring the masses requiring education to the University, may it not be 
possible to carry the University to them ? The University possesses 
a large amount of available resources and machinery, consisting partly 
of pecuniary means, partly and principally of men of high talents and 
endowments. These may be ruade instrumental in establishing pro- 
fessorships, lectureships, and examinations in the most important 
places in the kingdom. The institution of these professorships and 
lectures would be strictly analogous to the original foundation of the 
Universities themselves. The authorities of the places would no 
doubt gladly provide the requisite accommodation for the delivery 
of lectures, holding examinations, &c. Cambridge vould take its due

share of the work. The cycle of instruction would embrace the 
various subjects comprehended in the University examinations. By 
originating such a comprehensive scheme, the Universities would 
become the great centres and springs of education throughout the 
country and would command the s)mapathy and affection of the 
nation at large, without sacrificing or compromising any principle 
which they are bound to maintain.' It should be added that all this 
was, of course, to be in the interest of the Church, for one of his main 
principles was ' that the Catholic Church only has the power or the 
right to educate.' 
He was the first person I heard dilate on the theory of Folklore, 
and explain the permanence of detail in early stories by showing how 
conservative nurses and children are in always repeating a thing in 
the saine form of words. A child will correct you if you happen to 
vary the wording. He used to say that Herodotus was largely in- 
debted to the Arabian Nights, meaning of course that common fund 
of Eastern stories, which the Arabian Nights have preserved in their 
latest and fullest litera D" form. He was a great conversationalist, and 
what Johnson called a clubbable man. 
He at first warmly supported the new movement; but when 
Newman began to move away from the influence of Keble, and fell 
under the influence of De Maistre and Lamennais 1 (he had begun 
to lose his hold on Anglican church views as early as I839), and his 
younger supporters, such as J. B. Morris, Ward, and others claimed 
to hold all Roman doctrine in the English church 2, and especially 
after the appearance of Tract 9 ° in i84I, Sewell like Hook, W. Palmer 
of Worcester, and other steady churchmen, recoiled and ruade a stand ; 
they saw at last that Whately had been right in issuing his warning 
note T«ndimus in Zalium. Mozley speaks of Ward's monslrous cobwebs, 
and it was a common sa)ing that it was hard to have to face a new 
dissolving view once a month. Sewell's article in the Quarter s of 
Match 1842 marked the turn of the tide. In form it was quite 
innocent, it ruade no allusion to existing controversies. It was only 
an account of the Caroline Divines, showing how they did not speak

evil of the Reformation or the Reformers, did not rejeet the naine of 
Protestant (Laud said on the scaffold, 'I have always lived in the 
Protestant religion established in England, and in that I come now to 
die'), did hot spend their rime in pointing out the defects of the Churcb 
of England, vhile glossing over those of Rome, and palliating vhat 
they could hot praise; on the contrary, Andrewes, Laud, and others 
carried on a strong polemic against Rome. But all these things were 
just what the younger men of the movement were doing, and the 
article naturally irritated them. lIorris said, 'Is he not rightly called 
çuillus, for he will never go the whole hog'; but the pun was 
perhaps borrowed from Whately. 
lIost leading men, from Ne,a'man to Dalnvin, have been great 
novel-readers. The chiefs of the movement, from Newman down to 
Gresley and Paget, wrote novels I to illustrate their views, often xvith 
a large element of caricature in them ; in one, the puritan, gIelchizedek 
Howl, is ruade to say, 'Behold I will build unto myself a pue.' 
Sewell's novel Itawkslone was of a ver)" sensational character. The 
low-church parson is let off easily, he is only taken by Irish con- 
spirators into an underground cave and has to take an oath, with 
his lips set to a cup of blood, that he will hot tell. But of the 
two chier villains (Jesuits) one fled away shrieking into a secret 
passage, vhere he was eaten by rats, sho had evidently begun at the 
extremities, and the walls were convulsively scrabbled over with gory 
fingers; the other fell on his hands and knees, during a tire, into 
the melting lead of a reservoir. This was not quite original, for 
Tony Foster had fled into a secret passage at Cumnor, and Chowles 
in Old St. Paul's had gone down in the molten lead. Ail these 
caricatures have perished, but the religious idea took a gentler form 
in his sister lIiss Sewell's Ara A, tlerbert, and other tales; while 
lIiss Yonge's stories have been the delight of two generations of 
readers, gliss Yonge notes the change in the general vie, v, 'hen 
she makes Lucilla Sandbrook say, ' The last generation was that of 
mediaevalism, ecclesiolog', s)'mbolism, whatever you may call it. 
lIarried women have worked out of it. It is the middle-aged maids 
that monopolize it.' Sewell wrote rnany books, of which his Christian 
3Iorals and Chrislian Ioh'lics were perhaps the chief, but they were 
a Newman's Zellers ii. I 17.

very paradoxical. When he wrote of Tract 9 ° as leading men to 
receiving aradoxes and lterefore errors, Church notes 'good, vide 
Ctrislian Eltdcsl." He was perhaps thinking of such passages as 
that which Lecky notices , 'I believe that a geologist deeply impressed 
with the mystery of baptism--that mystery by which a new creature 
is formed by means of water and fire--would never have fallen into 
the absurdities of accounting for the formation of the globe solely by 
vater or solcly by tire. He would hot bave maintained a Vulcanian 
or a Neptunian theory. He would have suspected that the truth lay 
in the union of both.' There is a curious smatter of scientific talk in 
these books. Some were shocked at the comparison, in the CtrisIian 
tolilics, of the three parts of the British Constitution to the three 
Persons of the Trinity. 
When A. P. Stanley came up to Balliol in  834, Moberly at Balliol, 
Johnson at Queen's, and Sewell at Exeter were spoken of as the three 
best college tutors in Oxford. Sewdl's lectures were very interesting, 
partly because he wove in whatever he was thinking about, with little 
regard to the subject of the lecture. Once, when we ought to have 
been construing the Georgics, he spent nearly the whole hour in 
discussing Newman's Theory of Development. 'There are litfle 
machines,' he said, ' which will develop a small portrait into a large 
one, preserving the proportions. But if the machine so enlarged the 
nose and dwarfed the rest, that you could see little else but nose, 
it could hardly be called a legitimate development. Yet that is 
Mr. Newman's idea of development. He has really taken his idea 
simply from the actual growth of the Roman church, and almost 
ignores the existence of the Greek church, merely saying it is a case 
of arrested development like Cina.' It is curious to note that R. H. 
Froude s wrote as early as Aug. I835, '¥ou lug in the Apostles' 
Creed and talk about exansions. What is the end of expansions? 
Will hot the Romanists say that their whole system is an expansion 
of the Holy Catholic Church and the Communion of Saints ?' Sewell 
adhered to Keble's rule Quodrimura, verum. He was fond of saying

HISTORY OF E,V-ETER COLLEGE. cxlvii 
that the saine end might be arrived at by a variety of means, some- 
rimes quite opposite means. Thus the Baptist's ascetic lire, and our 
Lord's presence at feasts were both means to the same end. So 
again S. Paul recommends celibacy as good in a rime of mission 
work and persecution, but in a settled church it is better that the 
clergy should be married, and the parson's wife and daughters are 
often his best cumtes, lIiss lIozley was gratified by finding Newman  
once (though in a bantering tone)say," Parsons' vives are useful in 
a parish, and that in a way in which no man can rival them.' But 
Newman spoke satirically of the married clergy in Loss and Gain. 
Ward's sudden marriage, after his tierce denunciations of that state, 
was a great shock to the party. 
Sewell said, ' They call a miracle a suspension of the Laws of Nature. 
Why, we are always suspending those laws. Iron natumlly sinks in 
'ater, but ve bend it into shape, and use the law of displacement of 
fluids, and the iron ship floats. But properly speaking no law is 
suspended, we do but fight one law of nature by another. And this 
is what most of our improvements come to.' When some spoke 
slightingly of the 'Evidences,' Sewell said, We need all the help we 
can get. The men in S. Paul's ship did hot ride atone anchor only ; 
no, they casl four anchors oui of Ihe sIern, and zNslu'd for lhe day. He 
upheld the divine right of kings, but with a reservation. Kingship 
arose, he said, often from force or fraud, but long possession sanctified 
it. Three generations are enough for this. Even if the Jacobites 
might rise against George I or George II, )'et George III had the 
divine right. If Cromwell had ruade himself king, and his son Richard 
had succeeded, and then Richard's son, that son would have had the 
divine right. This did hot please some of out Stuart devotees who 
held that the divine right lasted for ever in one family. But, subject 
to this reservation, he upheld the theor)" of Passive Obedience. 
What the men most complained of was his forcing them into the 
schools before their sixteenth terre; which, as they then came into 
residence only in the fourth  (sometimes fffth)terre after matriculation, 
gave them too little rime; and this, when other colleges such as 
Balliol fixed no such limit. One man went to Alban Hall rather than

submit to the fuie, and got his first class from thence. The College 
rule was hOt reallv so strict, but Sewell so applied it. 
But he was sometimes as fanciful in his lectures as in his books. 
C. H. Pearson was shocked at his dictum that the highest class of 
animais, the vertebrate, was constructed as a type of the Cross. 
Marcus Southwell was once so annoyed that he said, ' Why does he 
call it lectures on Plato, on Butler and so on, when it is all lectures 
on SewelL' His etymologies were more than pre-scientific. Once 
he derived per,wig from the Greek ,r«pLOL,¢O*, 'a house round the head,' 
' the w is the Greek digamma, represented as usual by omicron.' Every 
one was taken aback, and only one man ventured to say, with hesita- 
tion,'I--I thought that per,'wig was another form of the French 
trru¢ue.' Sewell laughed and said, 'Of course you are right.' 
Another rime, after some similar derivation, Mackenzie Walcott, who 
had little regard for his brother Wykehamist, said, respectfully,' Might 
we hOt, Sir, on these principles, derive teaot from leeo.' 
It was at one of these lectures that Sewell burnt a book which he 
thought obnoxious, in I849, the last time a book has been publicly 
burnt in a College hall. The scene is thus described by the owner 
of the book, Arthur Blomfield i, now R. of Beverston and R.D. 
of Dursley, Glouc.:--'I had just bought the "Nemesis of Faith," 
or as it was called, "Faith with a Vengeance," when on Tuesday 
morning, Feb. 27, 1849 , I, an undergraduate of Exeter College, 
attended a lecture in hall. The Rev. William Sewell, Sub-Rector of 
]ïxeter College (hot "Dean of the Chapel ") was lecturer. He de- 
claimed loudly against Froude's "Nemesis of Faith." Hearing, on 
my own confession, that I possessed it, he requested me to bring 
"that book" to him. No sooner had I complied with his request 
(Sewell was my college tutor) than he snatched the book from my 
hands and thrust it into the blazing tire of the college hall (hot 
"quadrangle"). I see him now, with hall poker in hand, in delight- 
ful indignation, poking at this, to him, obnoxious book. In a few 
hours this " burning of the book" was known all over Oxford. As 
your article justly remarks, " the burning only served as an advertise- 
ment." ' 
It was a sight to see Sewell lecturing, or rather talking, in the hall.

He used to stand with his back to the great hall tire, and his gown 
gathered up in his left hand. His gown and surplice were usually 
nearly as ragged as those of Puse), and Burgon, which were said to 
be a grief of mind to their lad), friends. But let us be just to them. 
They were thinking of other things, it is doubtful whether they ever 
thought about their dress. Sewe|| used to tell a story about himself, 
vhich illustrates the communistic system that prevails on a College 
staircase. Often you do hOt get your own glasses, teacups, spoons, 
forks, &c., but those that happen to be ready to the servant's hand, no 
marrer whose they are. But this does not often extend so far as in 
Sewell's case. One Saturday his laundress said to him with a curts),, 
Please, Sir, )'ou want some new shirts. Wh)', IIary, he answered, 
looking down at his wrists with justifiable pride, this seems a very 
good shirt. Yes, Sir, she replied, with another curts),, but, for some 
time you have been liz,ing on lhe sla'rcase (i. e. wearing other people's 
shirts). This communism had its objectionable side. A man on the 
staircase, who was fond of natural history, kept a hedgehog, unknown 
to Sewell, and the creature sometimes strayed. One night, Sewell, 
hearing something scuttling about the room, jumped out of bed to see 
what it was, and came with his bare foot down on the hedgehog: 
naturally, for some little time, he did not walk quite easily. 
Sewell objected to University Comrnissions . He said the Colleges 
could and should reform themselves. Ail old laws tend to become 
obsolete, and much is gradually dropped or adapted to new require- 
ments. Let the Colleges make the necessar)' changes, throw open 
the close fellowships and scholarships, at least in part, and public 
opinion would support them. Unf,»rtunately there were two objections 
to this xdew--plausible as he always made his views; first that the 
favoured districts would not give up the close endowments without 
an Act of Parliament, and secondlv that a large part of the Oxford 
fellows opposed an obstinate non possumus to every change, and 
appealed to the intentions of the founders, xhich few of them carried 
out either as to residence or stud),. The only resource to compel 
the performance of the trust, or to carry out the changes made 
necessary b)" the lapse of time, was to call in the intervention of the

sovereign power, the State, which was done at last in 18[; 4. Even 
then only 3 Colleges, Exeter, Lincoln, and Corpus, availed them- 
selves of the privilege allowed them of drawing up their own 
statutes. The remaining Colleges left it to the Commissioners to 
draw up ' Ordinances' for them. Sewell xvrote a squib called The 
Um'versil_V Commission or Lord John Russell's 19osbag (an idea taken 
from Thomas Moore), issued anonymously at Oxford in 185o in 
4 parts, and J. T. B. Landon wrote, anonymously, two supplements 
to it, called Eureba, I85o and 1853. 
Sewell did a considerable thing in founding the Colleges of 
S. Columba near Dublin and Radley near Oxford. His books are 
forgotten, but his memory will survive as the founder of Radley. A sad 
disregard of economy in carrying out his ideas loaded him with debts, 
which marred the happiness of his later years, and severed his 
connection with Radley College over which he presided; but the 
work was taken up by other hands, and continues to flourish. 
J. B. Morris, a fair scholar and theologian, was one of the most 
curious men of that excited time. In I842 he gained the prize 
for an ' Essay towards the Conversion of Learned and Philosophical 
Hindus.' Newman says of him J, 'he is a most simple-minded, 
conscientious fellow, but as little possessed of tact or common sense 
as he is great in other departments. He had to take my church in 
my absence. I had cautioned him against extravagances in S. Mary's 
pulpit, as he had given some specimens in that line once belote. 
What does he do on S. Michael's day but preach a sermon, hOt 
sirnply on angels, but on his one subject, for which he has a mono- 
mania, of fasting; nay, and say that it was a good thing, whereas 
angels feasted on festivals, to make the brute creation fast on fast 
days, so I am told. May he (sah,is ossius suis) bave a fasting horse 
the next time he goes steeple-chasing. Well, this was hot all. X/ou 
may conceive how the Heads of Houses, Cardwell, Gilbert, &c., 
fretted under this; but the next Sunday he gave them a more 
extended exhibition, si quid ossz't. He preached to them, toldem 
verMs, the Roman doctrine of the Mass; and, hot content with that, 
added in energetic terms, that every one was an unbeliever, carnal,

and so forth, who did not hold it. To this he added other specula- 
tions of his own still more objectionable. This was too much for any 
Vice-Chancellor. In consequence he was had up before him; his 
sermon Offlcially examined; and he formally admonished; and the 
Bishop written to. The Bishop is to read his sermon, and I have 
been obliged to give my judgment on it, which is hOt favourable, nor 
can be. I don't suppose much more will be done, but it is very 
unpleasant. The worst part is that the Vice-Chancellor [Gilbert] has 
hOt said a single word to me, good or bad, and has taken away his 
family from S. lIary's. I cannot but hope that he will have the good 
sense to see that this is a mistake.' 
lXIorris and some others led a very ascetic life. AIl through Lent 
lXIorris took no food till sundown, and then only txxo handfuls of peas 
which he immersed in a little saucepan till they were soft enough for 
mastication. Dalgairns nearly lost his life at the close of the Lent of 
184o; for 36 hours before Good Friday he had abstained from food 
altogether ; late on the evening of Holy Thursday his scout found him 
lying on the floor, and he would hOt have recovered from his swoon 
but for prompt help. Froude (Remains i. 49-5 o, z Iz) remarks 
that fasting incapacitated him for work or thinking. 
lXIorris' conversation consisted largely in turning the English Church 
into ridicule. He passed his time in rooms in the front Tower, reading 
the Fathers, and cutting jokes upon our stepmother, the Church of 
England. Just before his secession the ]3ursar named him University 
preacher, to show that his brother fellows did not mistrust his loyalty 
to the Church. He accepted the nomination quite eordially, and 
went over almost immediately. The College naturally thought this 
an ungenerous return for their confidence. But Iorris found 
that his convictions were no longer such as were consistent with 
the obligations incumbent on a fellov of the College at that day, 
and he resigned his fellowship, lXIorris lived in London during 
the latter part of his life, in very poor circumstances. Old friends 
would make him come and dine, but after two or three times, when 
he found his attempts at converting them a failure, he would refuse 
to see them again. His special devotion was to the Virgin, and he 
wrote a book called Taleelha ]x'oomee, to show how Christ's words 
'Damsel, I say unto thee, Arise' were a type and prophecy of the

Assumption of the Virgin. Once when walking with a friend by 
a fine new church, his friend said, 'Who will be worshipped there, 
Ioris, in fifty years' time ?' and he answered, ' Either çIary, or [ary 
Arme!' Other persons have shared Morris' belief that posterity will 
run into one of two opposite extremes, and that either Romanism 
or Socialism xvill be the dominant power ir the future. But the 
dilemma is a very unsafe argument. 
He ws the last believer in the Phoenix t, and his letter about it 
is  good illustration of the fnciful reasoning of tht time. 'If 
an animal existed which served a particular prophetical function 
when the reality had been in one Person, there might be no more 
need of it, and soit might become extinct, if it is extinct... Ail dis- 
pensations of Providence contain anomalies, and so the anomalousness 
of the Phoenix seems to be almost positive evidence to induce one to 
believe it.' The reader xvho consults the writings of that troubled 
time may stalle or sigh over them. Iorris was a ver), likeable man. 
T. lXIozley 2 says, ' Iy sufferings at the hands of" Jack 3Iorris" I bave 
already described. But people love those most they bave taken most 
pains with. What would I give to have a day with him now, and 
hear his searchings and ramblings into the region of the supernatural ! 
hot but that ail nature was superrmtural in his eyes.' 
]ut in the tmoil of the Tractarian movement the proper work of 
the University and of the Colleges had not been wholly neglected. 
There were other mer xxho were carrying on the regular teaching 
of the Coilege with ver)" different aires and interests; and Frederick 
Denison 5Iaurice refers with deep gratitude to the kindness and 
generosity shoxn him by Jacobson (afterwards ]3ishop of Chester) 
and J. L. Richards (afierwards Rector). Jacobson, a friend of 
Sterling, had arranged that Maurice should enter at Exeter, and 
be allowed to count his Cambridge terres. Jacobsor xvrites, ' As

friendly tone between Maurice and the tutors shows how thc Tutorial 
system acted vhen properly worked. Maurice soon betook himself 
to the real work of his life, a prolonged effort to reach the mind 
of the working man, and help him to improve his condition. He 
thought that the Church of England, as an institution, ought to grapple 
with contemporary forms of social evil, so as to exhibit Christianity as 
the true source of every effective social amelioration. If the move- 
ment had affected him, he soon took his own line, and after 1848 
many others did the saine. ' Experience like a tide soaks ail absorbing 
in,' and the present leaders of the movement bave their minds opened 
to the claires of Criticism 1, and still more to the position of Labour and 
the need of a higher organization of work. When Canon Scott- 
Holland refers to Maurice's Içt)tgdom of Christ as authoritative ; when 
lIr. Gore presides over a meeting in Exeter College hall, held in 1893 
to consider the claires of labour, and Mr. Tom Mann is one of the 
chief speakers, it is clear that the old views have changed. The early 
leaders took no interest in the efforts of Maurice and Kingsley to im- 
prove the condition of the working classes in London and elsewhere *. 
The interest in the controversy between the Curches of England 
and of Rome began to flag. The secession of 1845 cleared the air, 
x Stanley said to Pattison, ' How different the fortunes of the Church of England 
might have been if Newman had been able to read German.' Newman confesses 
the failure of tbe movement in his Anglican 19iffculties; see Stanley's Lire, i. 37o. 
 Newman's imagination was attracted (Lelters il. 285) by the accotmt of the 
Capuchin in I tromessi Stosi.

and the political events of 1848 turned men's minds into other 
channels. They no longer discussed such questions as, whether the 
Church of England was bound by the four first or six first General 
Çouncils, whether England was in a state of schism or no, whether out 
position was one of continuous appeal to a General Council, &c. 
The question too of University Reform and the relation of the Profes- 
soriate to the Collegiate or Tutorial system attracted general attention. 
Here we may put together some notices about the more material 
aspects of the College. There have been considerable changes in the 
buildings during the last hundred years. In 1778 the Library was 
rebuilt after a design by the Rev. William Crowe. On 8 May  788 it 
was resolved to remodel the front and windows of the College. On 
o June 82o a new porch for the Hall, surmounted by a dock, 
was completed : the porch cost £io 3 II.-ç 3 6/, the clock £25 -s 3d; 
a water tank also was constructed in the Library Court, for £88  7s 3 d, 
containing 35 ° gallons. In 821 a servants' hall was constructed for 
the use of the Common Room * and Bursary in the adjoining cellar, 
with a passage under the Bursary, ata cost of £3o9 3 s. As far back 
as l o Nov. i74o it was ordered that a lamp should be put up to 
light the quadrangle (Wordsworth 688). Gas lights (Wordsworth 
408. 4Io) appear in 82o, perhaps to give way in turn to the electric 
light in 894. The new buildings east of the gate in Broad 
Street were commenced 833, and completed May 834 , they 
cost £3574 ilS 3d. In 1833- 4 also the buildings from the Hall 
round to the Chapel were new faced towards the Turl with Bath 
stone, oriel windows inserted, and the tower considerably altered ; the 
upper part of the tower was found to be so weak that the face of it 
was made to recede somewhat, and four turrets added to carry off the 
awkward appearance occasioned by the projection of the quoins ; the 
garrets on this side were raised considerably; the inner face of the 
tower towards the quadrangle was also refaced. In 1836 the interior 
of the Chapel was repaired and coloured and the glass cleaned. 
In 1854 New Buildings were begun with a tower facing Broad 

 The ' Common Parlor' was used earlier at Cambridge than at Oxford. Our 
first Common Rooms were at Merton and S. Joha's just al'ter the Restoration.

Street ; they contained x8 sers of rooms in addition fo a large room 
over the gateway in the Tower, and t, he first contract was for £3976. 
Next year the foundation of the New Library was laid, the first con- 
tract being for £z988, exclusive of the foundations. (The commis- 
sioners allowed first £4500, and then £x2oo more, of the Library 
funds to be thus used, see Reg. t854, and 8 May x858.) In x856 
a new Rectory House was built, together with eight sets of rooms 
between the Rectory and the Old Broad St. Buildings ; the first con- 
tract was for f5ooo. In I856 the Chapel was begun, the first 
estimate being for £7045, with £5oo for a turret, and 4o5 for 
doors, floor, &c. but all these estimates were much exceeded. The 
architect was Sir Gilbert Scott, who had reported that the North wall 
of the Chapel was in a very dangerous state, but there was great 
diftîculty in pulling it down. The first stone of the Chapel was 
laid by the Bishop of Rupert's Land (David Anderson, an old scholar 
of the College) 29 Nov. 856. It was consecrated on S. Luke's day 
x8 Oct. ,859 (Cox 426) by the Bishop of Oxford in the presence of 
the Visitor, Bp. Phillpotts. The money for these buildings had been 
accumulating for some years, the late Rector J. L. Richards gave 
£ooo and many persons then or previously Fellows of the College 
gave £ xoo each (which was nearly the value of a year's fellowship at 
that rime), some of the Fellows also each giving a couple of the 
marble or serpentine pillars, and great liberality was shown by old 
members of the College; the screen and organ were given by the 
undergraduates. The organ bas been twice reconstructed since that 
rime. The new Chapel occupies the site of the former Rector's bouse 
at the east end of the old Chapel, in addition to the ground on which 
the old Chapel stood. As part of an old City Ditch ran close to the 
north side, very deep foundations were required, and many cartloads 
of stone besides ail the stone work of the old Chapel were used in 
these foundations. The new Rector's bouse was built on the site of 
the old S. Helen's Quadrangle, which included 22 sets of rooms, so 
that there are only x4 sets of rooms gained in addition to the pre- 
viously existing accommodation. 
Many portraits xvere placed in the Hall during this period. In 
78o William Peters painted a picture of Walter de Stapeldon (said 
to be copied from a portrait of Bossuet), and it was placed at the east 



clvi HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 
end of the Hall 1. In i785 William Holwell painted a pieture of 
Sir William Petre and gave it to the College. In x832 a portrait of 
Bishop Prideaux was placed in the Hall. Itis a eopy from an 
original picture at Laycock Abbey in Wilts, ruade by an artist ealled 
Smith, who ruade another eopy for Dr. ]3urton, the Regius Professor 
of Divinity. Smith also eopied the picture of the first Earl of 
Shaftesbury at the Charterhouse in 834. The portrait of Rector 
Jones was painted by Phillipps i833, but the engraving by Cousins, 
who introduced some alterations, is a better resemblanee. The 
portrait of J. T. Coleridge was painted by Pickersgill in I835 , but 
if is hot so good a likeness as the engraving from lIrs. Carpenter's 
portrait of the Judge. The portrait of Sir Charles L)'ell is a good 
copy. That of Rector Cole by John Opie the Cornish artist is an 
original and good. 
In 833 serinons were delivered in the Chapel every Sunday 
evening for the first rime, the duty being undertaken by Richards the 
subrector, and Sewell. In 87 the Visitor ratified a shortening of 
the week day service in the Chapel. A musical service has been 
added on Sundays, Saints' Days, and Eves, and the Organist Scholar- 
ships have brought forward several men of mark. 
There have been disputes at different times about the respective 
rights of the Colleges and the City of Oxford. In 843 the City 
of Oxford endeavoured to rate the Colleges to the Poor Rate and 
tried the case with Exeter College. A parishioner of S. Iichael's 
was found to object to the rate, on the ground that Exeter College 
was hot rated. The rate was referred to the Recorder to be 
amended, and he placed the College on the Rate Book. A distress 
was levied and some College plate taken. The College brought an 
action of trespass, and the issue was tried at the Summer Assizes, but 
a verdict was given for the College on three points, ()That the 
Recorder had no jurisdiction under the Local Act which regulated the 
Poor Rate in Oxford; (2) That the Rector's lodgings should have 
been rated separately from the College; (3) That the old foundation 
of Exeter College is not in the parish of S. Iichael's (see Jackson's 
OafordJournal 2o july 844). The city was therefore nonsuited;

many original portraits. See list of our portraits p.

but the University felt that the exemption from the Poor Rate was 
unfair, and a friendly arrangement was corne to on the question. 
In 1846 the College settled a suit with the City about some ground 
lying on the south side of the old City wall and extending from the 
Turl to the wall that divides the Cllege from the Theatre court, about 
i8 poles in length, and running from north to south about 3 poles 
from the City vall to the ancient part of the College (except a bit of 
ground called 'The lXIount with the two studies,' a part of the free- 
hold conveyed by the Cty to the College about I78o and known as 
lIr. Alderman Wright's house in Prideaux buildings; this excepted 
piece may have been that on which two rooms stood, one above and 
one below, which adjoined the north side of the R.ector's lodgings and 
the south side of Prideaux buildings, uniting the two). The buildings 
on that site at this time were a considerable portion of the R.ector's 
lodgings, nearly the whole of the north aisle of the Chapel and about 
nine sets of rooms west of the Chapel. The City stated that the 
ground in question was leased to the College for 99 years from t622 ; 
that this lease was surrendered I682 and a fresh lease taken of 99 
years from that date, and the City contended that from I78I the 
Cllege were tenants at will at a quit rent of £i, as it was doubtful if 
there was any subsequent transaction. The College now agreed to 
pay £ 2ooo to the City for a conveyance in fee of the property, the 
 I quit rent and any other acknowledgment to cease ; the City was 
further to grant a new lease for the strip out of the street extending 
along the whole of the west and part of the south front of the College 
and held under the City for iooo years from 698- 9. The fine and 
fees in 682 were paid by lXlr. Alderman Wright, and this may 
account for the absence of such a charge from the Rector's Computus 
of that year ; it is explained in some degree by the fact that Alderman 
Wright obtained at this time a new lease of R.ector Prideaux' house of 
FIorth Hall by some arrangement with the College, for which the pay- 
ment of the fine and fees may bave been a consideradon. The lease 
of 1682 and that for the iooo years were however not to be found in 
the Collêge archives (see Reg. 174i 1), and there was great difficulty

about the whole matter. See Reg. pp. 99, 137- In 1849 the College 
bought of the City the fee of the site and buildings in Broad Street, 
heretofore held under lease, for £ 21 oo. 
In 1848 the servants were all urged by the Rector to insure their lires 
and distinctly informed that, if they neglected to do so, no provision 
would be made by the College for them or their families. Nearly all 
insured their lires in sums varying from £200 to £500 (Reg. p. 149). 
We may here put together a number of detached occurrences. On 
9 July 1745 the Rector was allowed to invest £800, taken from the 
Common Chest, ' collybo vel trapezitis vel alicui alii mensae publicae 
nummariae,' so long had the old custom lasted of keeping money 
unemployed. At the saine time it was proposed, and carried 8 Nov. 
(Bray dissenting) to sell part of the garden near the Radcliffe Library 
to the University. Few parts of Oxford have been more altered in 
their appearance than those xvhich now form the Radcliffe Square. 
In 182i Leadenhall was sold to Jesus College for £400. 
On  Dec. i788 a sure of rive guineas annually was voted to 
Dr. Holmes for collating manuscripts of the Septuagint. 
In 1793, x6 Colleges employed Bolton of Witney as brewer, as the 
Oxford brewers had raised the price per barrel from 3os to 3s by 
a combination: only three Colleges brewed for themselves, lIerton, 
Queen's, and S. John's. 
In i794 the College gave £5 ° towards the Home Defence of the 
country. The Funds were so low that in 1797 the College bought 
£iooo consols at 50} per cent., thus giving only £503 15s , including 
commission of £ 1 Ss. 
On  i Ap. i818 £ioo was voted to the Public Fund for building 
churches and chapels. 
But xvho will grive us a history of the social changes during this 
century x, and tell us how consiutionals came in, just before Arnold's 
time, and have since been largely superseded by athletics ; how the

brought in Sunday evening serices t, though the clergy at first 
opposed them as Methodistical. But the Evangelicals, as usual, led 
the way in this movement. Bowls used tobe played in the College 
gardens after dinner, from 7 to 9 in the summer evenings; but, when 
the dinner hour moved on to 7, it vas too late to play, as it got 
dark and the dew began to fall. For the saine reason the custom of 
taking a walk in the summer evening has ceased. AIl games have 
altered. Football, which in Laud's time was played in the streets, 
and was therefore forbidden, has now reached a dignity which 
assimilates it to the tournaments of the Middle Ages. And Golf has 
conquered England as well as Scotland, and become a fanaticism. 
Cricket was always played, but was hot such an institution or such 
a show as at present. The poet says truly :-- 
Then cricket rules the noontide hours, 
And maidens in and out of teens 
Pet-use cach other's lace and flowers, 
And wonder hat on earth it rnean». 
But the maidens now know all about cricket, and BIiss K. Gent 
reports 2 that it is sometimes played at the Ladies' Halls. The 
benighted Londoner who thinks these Halls are frequentcd by long 
rows of pale heavy-eyed girls bending over books on a lovely summer 
afternoon, would be astonished to see the energy and animation vhich 
they devote to all sorts of games on the lawn. 
The way in vhich men dressed in Keble's and Arnold's time now 
seems strange to us 8. 
The order of gent]emen-commoners 4 has disappeared. They 
dined at High Table with the fellows, and on]y attended such lectures 
as they liked. For these privileges they paid somewhat higher fees; 
and often bequeathed their silver tankards when they left to the 
College, or requested that their caufion-money might be laid out in 
tankards for the use of the Hall; and some tankards still preserve 
their names. They at last objected to the fees, and were abolished. 
But the system suited some men who came up at a more advanced 
age, and wished to reside for a rime at the University.

HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

With the coming in of the Examination system, reading ceased to be 
contemptible, the Scholars of a College were no longer looked down 
on by the Commoners, and the greater facility of travel ruade reading- 
parties common, commoner atone rime than they are now. In 
olden days tutors taught their classes in their own rooms, now every 
College has lecture-rooms. Of course, as soon as the system of 
inter-collegiate lecturing came in, more space was required. And 
now there are nota few lady-students. The men's rooms too now 
boast sometimes of sofas and easy chairs, comforts unknown to the 
t,rinfitive age. The Indoor has grown with the growth of the Outdoor 
lire. The sanded floors and spittoons of the common rooms gave way 
to carpets in the early part of this century. Dr. Lightfoot told us that, 
when it was first proposed to have a carpet, the then senior Fellow 
put his back against the door and said, ' Gentlemen, if )'ou will intro- 
duce such a monstrous luxury, I will never enter this room again.' 
And he never did. One great modern improvement is the abundance 
of artificial light for reading in the evenings. Men once had not 
the genial inspiration of good candle-light or lamplight. The quite 
modern institution of tubbing in the mornings ruade it necessary to 
lay water on every floor of every staircase. The paving and lighting 
of the streets has been a great benefit. In x77o there was no pave- 
ment in the High except belote S. Mary's. The streets were paved 
with small pebbles, a depressed gutter tan down the middle of 
each street to collect the rain, and it was diflïcult to avoid being 
splashed with the filthy mud. Johnson used to stand astride over 
these kennels wrapt in meditation. It was the Commissioners' Act of 
x77I that enabled some active-minded men in the University and 
City to effect valuable changes. 
It is diflïcult to collect information about College Clubs. There 
was a Debating Society at Exeter in i793 (Wordsworth 587). Sewell 
founded a Moral Philosophy Society that had some vogue. About 
J839-41 there was a good Essay Club in Exeter, of which Powles, 
King, Morton, Langhorne, Northcote, Cowburn, Crosse, and Ewart 
were mc.mbers. Powles published an Essay on Gleek Banquets, and 
R. J. King two Essays, ' On the Supernatural Beings of the Middle 
Ages,' and ' On the origin of the Romance Literature of the xii and 
xiii centuries, chiefly with a reference to its Mythology.' Ernest

Hawkins was connected with the Oxford Club of the I?amblcrs, which 
was kept up in London at lais rooms in Vernon Place under the title of 
the ërnon (C. H. O. Daniel, Out l][emories, 89). 
Iost Colleges have their debating club, Exeter has its Stapeldon 
Club, which aiso acts as a committee of the Junior Common Room. 
Not to speak of Shakespeare clubs and chess clubs, the Iusicai Society 
is of repute, even beyond our Coilege walls, as are aiso the Dialectical 
Society and Theological Sem)t«r. These Societies and Seminars 
take the place of the mediaeval Dispulalioncs in A ula. Not that they 
are descended from them, but that similar needs produce similar 
institutions. For there is something in the collision of intellects, in 
the living sparks struck out in conversation and discussion, that 
supplies a stimulus hOt given by merely reading books; and the 
recluse student misses a good deal b), not mingling with lais equals. 
and hearing their objections and opposing views. Almost more than 
anything else, this tends to clear up a man's mind and, even if he 
does hOt succeed in convincing his opponents, he often succeeds in 
gaining some access to fresh vistas of thought. 
But Oxford has a social as weli as an intellectual side, and athletics 
take a ver)" leading place 1. lIark Pattison once said, as he was waiking 
round the Parks, that the main business of the University consisted in 
cricket and croquet, varied, occasionally, by a little reading and writing. 
Exeter College was the first to start an athletic gathering; some even 
ventured to say, the first in the world, since the Oi)mpic Gaines. 
The foilowing is an authentic account . ' The year was 185o. If was 
the evening after the College Steeplechase ('uigarl)" called the Col&ge 
Grtha. Some four or rive congenial spirits were sipping their wine 
in the rooms of R. F. Bowles (brother to John Bowles, the well-known 
coursing squire, of Mihon Hill). Bêsides the host there 'ere James 
Aitken, George Russell (now Sir George Russeil, of Swallowfield), 
lIarcus Southwell, and Halifax Wyatt. The topic was the event of 
the da),, and the unsatisfactory process of ttrgolialt)tg a country on 
Oxford hacks. "Sooner than ride such a brute again," said Wyatt,

whose horse had landed into a road on his head instead of his legs, 
"I 'd run across two mlles of country on foot." "Well, why not ?" said 
the others, "let's have a College foot grind;" and so it was agreed. 
Bowles, who always had a sneaking love for racing--born and bred 
as he was near the training grounds on the ]3erkshire Downs-- 
suggested a race or two on the fiat as well. Again the party agreed. 
The conditions were drawn up, stakes named, oflîcials appointed, and 
the first meeting for Alhletic Slborls inauguraled. On the first afternoon 
there was tobe a chase, two toiles across country, twenty-four jurnps, 
£x entry, os forfeit; and on a subsequent afternoon, a quarter of 
a mlle on the fiat, 300 yards, xoo yards, 4o yards over ten flights of 
hurdles o yards apart, one toile, and some other stakes for "beaten 
horses," open to members of Exeter College only. Notice of the 
meeting, with a list of the stakes, was posted in the usual place-- 
a black board in the porter's lodge. Plcnty of entfies vere ruade, in 
no stake ]ess than ten ; for the steel0]echase there were twent)'-four 
who started. 
' The course chosen was on a fiat marshy farm at ]3insey, near the 
Seven Bridge Road; it was ver), wet, some fields swimming in water, 
the brooks bank high, and a sort take-off, which meant certain 
immersion for most, if not ail, the competitors. Twenty-four went 
to the post, not twenty-four hard-conditioned athletes in running 
toggery, but twenty-four strong active youngsters in cricket shoes and 
flannels, some in fait condition, some ver), much the reverse, but ail 
determined to do or die. Plenty of folk on horse and foot came to 
see this novelty, for in modern as in ancient Athens men 'ere always 
on the look out for some new thing; and in this instance, judging 
from the excitement and the encouragement given to the competitors, 
the novelty was much appreciated. 
' As about hall of the twenty-four starters left the post as if they were 
only going to run a few hundred yards, they were necessarily soon 
done with. Aitken, gradually corning through ail these, had the best 
of the race until one field from home, where Wyatt and J. Scott, who 
had been gradually creeping up, tan level. They jumped the last 
fence together. Wyatt, who landed on firmer ground, was quickest 
on his legs, and tan in a comparafively easy winner. There was 
a tremendous struggle for the sccond place, which was just obtained

by Aitken. The time, according to the present notion of running, 
must no doubt have been slow, but thc ground was deep, the fonces 
big, and ail the competitors were heavily handicapped by wct flannels 
bcdraggling their legs. 
' Of the fiat races, which were held in Port lIeadow, on Uldevelled 
turf, no authentic record bas been preserved of ail the events. The 
hurdle-race was won b), E. Knight, R. F. Bowlcs being second.

'In 1851 Exeter followed up the autumn meeting of i85o with 
a summer meeting on Bullingdon, and we think that both a high and 
broad jump were introduced in the programme. Lincoln was the 
next to take up the idea, then a college in Cambridge in i855. 
Balliol, Wadham, Pembroke and Worcester followed the example in 
1856 , Oriel I857 , Blerton 1858 , Christ Church 1859 , and in 86 
separate college meetings had become general. At the close of 186o 
the Oxford University Sports, open to all undergraduates, owed thcir 
foundation to the exertions of the Rev. Edwin Arkwright of BIerton. 
After this, the thing went like wildfire, spreading simultaneously on 
every side; but after colleges and schools, we believe that the 
Service was the first association formed for the promotion of Athletic 
Sports, in I864.' 
Exeter was thc third club to have a cricket ground of its own 
Brasenose and the Bullingdon club had grounds in I835, and Exeter 
in 844. 
It ma)' be interesting also to give a brief summary of the boat races. 
for the latter part of which I ara indebted to Falconcr Iadan Esq. 
In 1824 Exeter was at thc head of the river in the famous White 
Boat, of which thcre is a picture. The boats at that time werc 
crowded into Iffley Lock and got away in rcgular order, thus allowing 
each in turn a considerable start. There wcre only three boats on 
the river that year, Christ Church, Brasenose and Exctcr. Excter 
bumped Brasenose the first night, and then Christ Church took off:

a carriage, ,upposed to be the first rime a boat travelled by land. 
When that genial old geologist, so well known in Torquay, Edward 
Vivian, was up at a Gaudy some years ago, and went in to see the 
junior Common Room, he looked up at the picture of the White Boat 
and said, ' Ah ! that was the year I matriculated.' The men crowded 
round him as if he was a survival from prehistoric tlmes, and he 
had to tell the whole story. He told them too that when he and 
William Pengelly explored Kent's Cavern, the Torquay book club 
expelled him, geology being then looked on as heretical . 
Ieginning with 837 , Exeter has been at the head of the river thirty- 
seven days, riz.: during all 838 (6 rimes), all 857 (8), all 858 (8),

during three years, and again during two. In the Torpids, beginning 
with 85-% she was at the head fifty-nine days, riz.: 854 (2), all 
I855 (6), all 1856 (6), ail 857 (6), i858 (4), 859 (4), ail 186o (6),

number of days (59) she is second only to Brasenose (xo3), but who 
can match Brasenose ? There is a tradition that whenever the great 
chesnut tree in Exeter garden stretches out its boughs so as to touch 
Brasenose, Brasenose is fated that year to lose her place on the river; 
this happened in 189z , but usually her oarsmen have 'gained the 
weathergage of fate.' The Exeter colours are : Jersey, white trimmed

The Library contains about 4o,ooo printed books, and 84 manu- 
scripts. Among the latter are two parchment Latin Psalters, finely 
gilded and iIluminated. One is unique, in that it was the family bible 
of the Lancastrian and Tudor Houses'. From the joint occurrence 
of the Royal arms and those of Bohun, and the words l?omine sah'um 
lac ltu,fridum serz, um luum in a collect at the end, it was probably 
written for Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford, grandson of 
Edward I, who died 36 ; and its probable date is about the time of 
the battle of Crecy, 346. It may have passed to the royal family 
through his grandniece lIary, ho married Henry IX" in 38o and 
died 394. Her sister Eleanor married Edward III's son, Thomas of 
Woodstock, after 374. It seems specially to have belonged to the 
Queens, for on the first leaf we have This bok« ys myn Et'sabcth ye 
qwene ; and below Tht's boke is myn 'athcrine the qwene, i.e. Elizabeth 
of York and Catherine of Aragon: and it ma.)" bave been the book 
from which the royal children learnt their Latin. 
In the Calendar are births, deaths and marriages of the royal family 
up to the rime of Henry VIII, and no doubt it passed to Eizabeth, 
who gave it to Sir William Petre, and he gave it to the College which 
he had refounded. It is the sole source for the date of the birth of 
Henry VII, i.e. 28 Jan. 45, ' the noble king Harry the vii was borne 
festo Agnetis secundo  a.t. 456, and wedded queen Elisabeth festo 
Sancte Prisce virginis [i.e. x8 Jan.] ^.t. r485, after the compteng of

The other Psalter , written more towards the end of the 14th century, 
has a series of very fine Initial Letters, of English work (the Calendar 
too contains English Saints, e.g.S. Swithin), and several large 
illuminations. (3ne of them represents David dancing before the 
Ark, while Michal is pointing her finger at him in scorn from the 
balcony of a fortress, just by the portcullis. Another shows Absalom 
caught in a tree, and Joab in the garb of a medieval knight is running 
him through with a lance. On Joab's golden shield is a black lion 
rampant. Below, David, seated on an uncomfortable looking gate, is 
tearing his hair as the messcnger brings him the news. The first 
verse in the Calendar is' Prima dies mensis et septima truncat ut ensis.' 
The Illuminator of those days took special delight in his Initial 
Letters--

On the death of the lamented Alfred Èdersheim in 1889, his widow 
rnost generously presented his library to the College. It consisted 
largely of Hcbrew and Talmudic and early Christian literature, and 
had been selected svith a special view to illustrating the history of the 
centuries immediately 1,receding and following the Birth of Christ. 
She only ruade one condition, that the books should be lent freely 
to ail members of thc University who were working on the subject. 
This was exactly vhat we should have wished, for the Library bas 
been freely opened to members of the University, an intercollegiate 
courtesy now generally practised. 
The Library has the advantage of looking out on one of the 
l,leasantest gardens in Oxford, an advantage shared by the reading 
room of the Bodleian. Tltey say that gem-engravers, when their

ment ; perhaps the green turf and the trees of a garden may have the 
same effect. There is a tradition that the winding path in the garden 
was planned by Hogarth, to illustrate his idea of the line of beauty-- 
but it is hOt easy to give an), authority for such traditions, except what 
they say to you in Italy, ci si dicea. 

This sketch of the history of the College in its rdation to the 
history of the University ma)" fitly be brought to a close with the first 
hall of the present century. The old order has passcd away, and 
a new state of things has been created by the action of the University 
Commissions of 1854 and 1877, and by the Universities Tests Act of 
187 I. The executive Commission of 1854. following the Commission 
of inquiry which reported in 1852, made some additions to the 
Professoriate, but its chief work was the removal of local restrictions 
on endowments. At the great mass of the Colleges the Scholarships 
had been confined to the natif'es of certain localities, and the Fellow- 
ships were bound by the same restrictions, xxhich were to a large 
extent removed in 1854. In that year, before the new statures came 
into operation, there were about 13o Scholarships in the University 
xvhich were open, or might be thrown open in default of fit candi- 
dates from the favoured Iocalities. At the present time there are hOt 
less than 420 such Scholarships besides the Close Scholarships and 
Exhibitions sfill retained, and a large number of Oic,en Exhibitions 
of recent foundation. At Exeter College the Fellowships, with the 
exception of the Chaplain Fellowship to xxhich the Dean and Chapter 
of Exeter still nominated, were thrown open in 1854, and were 
reduced in number to fifteen the revenues of the suppressed Fellow- 
ships being applied to the foundation of Open Scholarships. The 
clerical restriction on the Fellowships {except the Chai,lain Fdlowship) 
as partly removed, as a Fellowship under thc ncw statutes was not 
vacated through failure to take Orders until thc end of fifteen years 
from election, and an), one who had served the College for ten years 
as Tutor or Lecturer was allowed to retain his Fellowship for lire, 
if he remained unmarried and did hot hold a bencfice or possess 
propcrty of more than a certain value. The Commission of 1854 
 I ara indebted for this [,art of the text to th¢ kindness of thc Rector. 



clxx HISTORY OF EXETER COLLEGE. 
on the other hand, in the case of the Rectorship, made the obligation 
of Holy Orders more binding than before, as this obligation had 
previously arisen only from the attachment of the Vicarage of Kidling- 
t6ri to the office (without any institution), and there had been some 
doubt whether the Rector might hot still be a la)'man, and perform the 
duties of the Vicarage by deputy. All the Fellowships and Scholarships 
were still restricted to members of the Church of England. 
The Universities Tests Act removed this restriction, except from the 
Chaplain Fcllowship, but the Fellowships were stiil vacated at the end 
of fifteen years unless the holder were in Orders, or had earned his 
exemption from this obligation by service to the Collcge. The Rector- 
ship was still confined to persons in Orders. 
The University Commission of t 877 carried still further the changes 
which had been introduced in 1854, and in 1871. The conception 
of the University as an institution distinct from the Colleges had bcen 
alread)" revived, and had found expression in the statute for the 
admission of Non-Collegiate Students in 1868. The Commission 
of 1877 developed this conception, and endowcd the University at 
the expense of the Colleges, giving at the saine rime a further exten- 
sion to the Professoriate. The Commission also to a great extent 
relcased Fello's in the various Colleges from the restrictions of 
celibacy, while it ruade ail Fellowships terminable, some absolutely, 
others concurrently with the College office to which they were attached. 
It sanctioned the establishment of a pension scheme for College 
olîïcers, and it removed the obligation to take I Ioly Orders from 
ail Fello'ships, except a few which were still retained as endowments 
for persons discharging clerical duties in the Colleges, and from 
aimost all the Headships including the Rectorship of Exeter College. 
This state of things, so far as the clcrical restriction is concerned, 
is not unlike that contemplated by Stapeldon, as the Founder 
originally required only one Fcllow, the Chaplain, to be in Holy 
Orders. In dealing with the Scholarships of this College the Com- 
mission did not alter the statutes of the former Commission, but 
it paid more regard to the wants of poor menl, as it gave the 
i Eton, Winchester. and nearly all the old schools and college v¢ere foundett 
expressly for poor mçn. For w'htse bencfit do they exist now ? In this matter

College power to round Exhibitions, while it limited ail Exhibitions 
both in the present, and in the future, to persons vho are in need 
of assistance at the University. An audit by authorised accountants is 
now required. 
The changes which bave taken place at Exeter College since x854 
are very similar to those which have been experienced throughout 
Oxford. There has been an irresistible movement drawing the Englih 
Universities into the current of national lire in England 1. What has 
seemed to be a revolution has been to a large extent a return to the 
original conception of the relation of the Universities to the nation, 
with such alterations as have been made necessary by the course of 
time. The members of Exeter College welcomed the inevitable 
change. Exeter was one of three Colleges , which alone among the 
Colleges of the University co-operated with the Commission of 1854, 
and drew up its own statutes with the sanction of the Commission 3 
It therefore enjo)'ed the privilege of altering them after the expir)" of 
the Commission with the consent of its Visitor, the I3ishop of Exeter. 
In 877 a new body of statutes had been prepared b)' the College for 
the acceptance of the Visitor. These statutes contained most of the 
provisions which were afterwards approved by the Commissioners. 
The changes ,«hich bave been introduced in the last forty years bave 
no doubt had some injurious effects; but, likê most changes x'hich 
have become inevitable, they have donê more good than harm, and 
have had many compensating advantages. When there was a number 
of Fello'ships restricted to natives of Devon and Crnwall, many of 
the ablest men born in those counties held Fellowships in the College 
for a time, and reflected credit on it by their distinction in after lire, 

that rich men's sons should be elected, as now, to Open Scholarships, but mainly 
as an honour, while Scholarships of the full value should be reserved for poorer 
mon. This is one of the ideas now being brought forward on the subjcct. Set

such as the late Sir John Coleridge, the present Lord Chier ustice of 
England, Mr. Froude, Mr. Justice Kekewich, and Mr. H. F. Tozer '. 
But the freedom nov accorded to the College, by which" it is 
permitted to offer a Fellowship to any rising scholar or man of 
science, to some extent atones for the loss it bas sustained. Even 
belote 854 the Petrean Fellowships had been accessible to the 
natives of several English counties, and had added many distinguished 
members to the College. Among these we may be allowed to 
mention osiah Forshall, the editor of Wiclif's Bible, Professors 
Rawlinson, Ince, and Palgrax'e. the late ]3ishops Jacobson of Chester, 
and Mackarness of Oxford, Mr. Justice Chitty, the Bishop of South- 
xvell, the late Canon George Butler, and Canon G. H. Curteis. Since 
854 hile Professors Holland, By'ater, Ray Lankester, and Pelham, 
and Sir C. A. Turner (formerly Chier Justice of Madras)became Fellows 
by open compefition, the late Professor Moseley, and Professor Sndy 
bave been nominated to Fellowships in recent years; and Professor 
W. M. Rmsay, no" of Aberdeen and formerly Professor of Classical 
Archaeology at Oxford, was enabled by the timely offer of a Fellowship 
fo prosecute those researches in Phrygia x'hich have added so much to 
the reputation of English scholarship . The Chaplain Fellowship is no 
longer in the gift of the Dean and Chapter ofExeter ; but the Stapeldon 
Scholars, vho in some respects more nearly than the modern Fellovs 
ans'er to Stapeldon's idea of a Fellov of a College, still maintain the 
local connexion of De'on and Cornwall with Exeter College; and 
the old attachment bet'een those countis and the College bas by 
no means died out. The removal of the celibate restriction bas no 
doubt materially affected the social lire ithin the Colleges. But 
it was impossible any longer to maintain the old system. In 
former rimes, 'hen laxer notions were pre'alent, it had not conduced 
' Among the old Devon exhibitioners still living is Mr. R. D. Blackmore, the 
author of Æorm )oom" and other well-known tales. 
 An unsally large nmber of Professorships has been held in recent years by 
present or former members of the College. To the names of Fellows or Ex-Fellows 
mentioned in the text may be added those of two former Scholars of the College, 
l'rofessor Napier, and Mr. W. 13aldwin Spencer, formerly Fellov of Lincoln, and 
ow Profe«sor of 13iology in the University of Melbourne. Pofessor Bttler o[ 
S. Andrews, son of Canon George ]3utler. was a commoner. Nor shold we omit 
to mention here the names ot Sir Gardner Wilkinson and Sir Charles Lyell, who

to morality in the University. Dr. /lacbride, who was elected to 
a Fellowship in 8oo, when pressed to write the reminiscences of his 
early days, declined to do so on the ground of the scandais which he 
wouid have to record. There were nota few concealed marriages 
(Wordsworth 569)1. The religious movement in Oxford, and the 
generai improvement in social morality had raised the standard of 
practice, and wiped away these reproaches; but when the majority of 
Fcllows of Colleges no longer took Holy Orders, or had an)" other 
profession than that of College Tutor, it was impossible to retain the 
ablest men in Oxford without removing the obligation of celibacy. 
Its removal has been attended with a great increase of literary and 
scientific activity. If has necessarily been supplemented by a pension 
scheme which will enable the Colleges to provide for the retirement of 
men who have rendered thcm service, before they become incapacitated 
for their work. The lire of the undergraduates in Colleges has been 
far less affected by legislative changes than might have been antici- 
pated. Fashions vary from generation to generation. The University 
examinations are constantl)" undergoing changes, and are generally 
increasing in range and thoroughness. But the general character of 
College lire has been little altered. Iany of those 'ho lamented the 
abolition of tests, and of clerical restrictions on Fellowships, foreboded 
a lapse into irreligion, or ai least into indifferentism. It is truc that 
compulsory attendance at Charnel has been abolished; but there 
never was a time within living memory when there were so man), 
voluntary religious associations, or when there was so much genuine 
and intelligent interest in religious questions among the under- 
graduates. In fact the Universities reflect the state of feeling and 
opinion outside. The most prominent characteristic of University 
history in the present century is the action on the Universities of the 
various movements of thought on speculative, religious, political and 
social questions, and the counter-action of the Univcrities en these. 
Some people may regret that the University has ceased to be, if 
indeed it ever was, the home of lost causes; but an institution that 
 One of these tr.l'ptoKams, who had taken a country living, when asked how he 
could hold a Fellowship and yet be married, replied, with a dark look, A man who

xva.s only the home of lost causes might perhaps in these days be 
somexs'hat peremptorily called to account. Yt, although the Univer- 
sities have parficipated deeply in ail the changes that have affected the 
lire of the nation, their influence must continue to be in some respects 
essentially conservative. The best knowledge, vhich it is their speciaI 
province to acquire and to transmit, is independent of the fashion of 
the day. The Universities bave also cxhibited a type of life which 
with many slight variations has maintained a strong identity. Hence 
both for University men and for the world at large the history of the 
Universities has had a peculiar attraction ; and so long as it maintains 
its continuity, a sketch of the varying fortunes of one of the older 
Colleges of Oxford will not be without its interest both for the general 
rcader and for the members o1 that College for whom it was originally 
designed. 

The main authorities used are as follows :-- 
Computi Rectoris, from the year i34 *. From about i396 the 
Computi ofien omit the Christian names of the Fellows, and hence 
some difficulty arises. References such as 'autumn i4o 7 ' belong to 
the Computi. The last parchment Computus is that for aummn 1566 : 
in the previous one there occurs ' vid pro cartaceo quodam libello in 
quo inscribenda sunt singula quoquo tempore a Rectore recepta et 
recipienda.' This paper book, marked H, runs from .utumn I566 to 
autumn I639. A similar book, marked B, runs on to i734. More 
modern books follow. There are also I3ursars' Books from the Stuart 
times, and Quarterly I3ooks, and Kitchen I3ooks, and Promus' Books 
(which are duplicates of the Bursars' Books), but some in each series 
are missing. There is one Quarterly book i596-8 , but the series 
begins with I6O3, though with a gap between I637 and I65I. There 
are Kitchen (]3uttery) books of I593, I596. I6O, I6O3, and then 
16-4. The Promus' books begin at Lady-day 176z , but bave been 
preserved only x-hen the ]3ursars' books are missing. There are also 
some 'Cate books' from I67o. Ail these books contain curious 
information, e.g. ' the size of bread : a penney white is I o oz. 14 t .w ,

There are no contemporary |ists of Fellows prior to the commence- 
ment of the College Register on 25 Oct. I539. The previous names 
are given as they stand in the Computus Rectoris of each term, and 
as a Fe|low is only named there -hen his commons are diminishd 
by his going out of residence for a time, the lists are anything but 
complete, especially as some of the Rectors' Accounts are missing. 
Not a few men must have been Fellows for some time before their 
names appear. It is also difficult to assign the Fellows to their 
respective counties. The Chaplain is sometimes known by the larger 
yearly payment he receives. Some of the names belong to well known 
Devonshire or Cornish families, or the Fêllows are ascertained from 
other sources to have been born in one of those counties. The dates 
when one Fellow vacated and another was elected in his place are 
sometimes given in the coml,uti , but the records are too impcrfect to 



clxxvi I IISTOR¥OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

offer much help of this kind. Itclp is sometimes gained from other 
sources. Thus William Franke is given as Fellow in 137o; but, as 
a document of 26 Oct. 1371 calls him Senior Fellow, he must have 
been Fellow at least as early as 1362. The same document shows 
that John Skylling, who occurs as Fcllow in 1385, must have been 
Fcllow as early as 1371. See also the case of W. de Ileghes 1337. 
It is not till 1372 that a coml,lete list of 15 Fellows can be made out. 
To quote the names under one year from the OId list will show its 
imperfection : ' 1423 Edmund Fitchet A.,t. and Rector, 13enet, Treinges, 
J. ]3rente, J. ]3eawcombe A..t., Stone, Zeate, W. David A.t2; here 
Treinges is a misreading for Walter Trengoff, Zeate a misreading for 
Ycatc, and four have no Christian names assigned thcm. ]3y com- 
paring the names as given in the text it vill be seen how little hclp 
was to be got from the Old list, and how necessary it was to reconstruct 
the whole account from the computi and other documents. Nevertheless 
some names have been inserted, for which the Old list is the only 
authority, as documents now missing may have been used in its 
compilation. After the Register begins the names are given more 
correctly, and after some time a few particulars are added to some 
names, but rarely more than a line or two, and it cost much labour to 
find out what became of the Fellows, what preferment they held, and 
SO on. 
It should be noted that the first edition of this work still retains 
a value of its own, owing to the Latin documents given in it, hOt 
reprinted here, and to a, in some respects, fuller text and index. 
A volume published by me this year, The Commoru'rs of Ex,'ler 
Coll, ge, completes the list of members, and gives fuller accounts of 
many names incidentally mentioned here. 
1Mr. H. Hurst has kindly taken in charge the illustrations and the 
accompanying tables. IIe found it very difficult to make sure of the 
exact situation of the old Halls, most of which perished early; but 
had the benefit of working on a previous plan kindly supplied by 
Mr. F. P. Morrell, who had it from his father. One main difficulty 
occurs at the SW. corner of the College, which is not described as 
occupied by any Hall, and where we are hOt quite certain about the 
position of the lane and of S. lXIildred's church. Wood (Cily i. I 15) 
only says of Castell I Iall' al, ou! the corner at the W. end of S. Mildred's

Lane.' An Osney rental of 1z59 (Wood D. z. p. 458 S. Iildred's) 
says 'domus in occi&'nlah" parte t"cclesiae quae fuit Johannis de 
S. Johanne,' &c., next to xhich is ' domus super terrain Wyger ex 
opposito eiusdem ecclesiae,' &c. There is also some doubt about the 
two towers on the N. side of the College. The summary at the end 
of Prideaux' Survey says 'z Towres which were formerly in the 
Rector's backyard and garden, now ail demolished.' The eastern of 
these, south of the centre of the Ashmolean, seems from an old map 
(B) in the Rector's possession to have been Almond's (p. 313) and 
nlay be part of the land sold to the University (Wood's Ljt'e iii. 78, 
Comp. Vice-Canc. z 678- 9 ' to D r Bury for ground bought of Exeter 
College for Ashmole's Repository 80 h'.'). About the other there is 
no doubt, as the foundation has been seen by many people. 
Some apology is due for reproducing a copy only of Agas' view of 
the College. The original is rather small for easy comparison with 
13ereblock; and it is so torn, blotted and stained, that it is doubtful if 
a tolerable negative can be obtained from it; it is also defective 
towards the bottom. Whittlesey's copy of it contains a few departures 
from the original, lIr. Hurst has therefore worked out an erdarged 
copy of the Agas, and supplied the defective parts from Whittlesey. 
A dotted fine in the lower part of the view shows how far Agas and 
his copyist have been taken as authorities. The Clarendon Press 
bas shown its usual skill in taking the negatives. 
The Author is much indebted to the Rector and ]3ursar, to 
Professor Bywater, Falconer lIadan, Esq., Sub-Librarian of the 
Bodleian, W. ]3. Gamlen, Esq., of Exeter College, Secretary to the 
University Chest, and other friends; but, above ail, to his brothers 
G. C. ]3oase and F. ]3oase, vho have devoted much time to reading 
the proofs, and have contributed much additional information ; and to 
Prebendary Hingeston-Randolph, and to J. Ingle Dredge. Vicar of 
Buckland ]3rewer, vho have done him a similar kind office, the 
former supplying details from his unrivalled knowledge of the Epis- 
copal Registers, the latter by the use of his Collections amassed 
from the parish registers of Devon and through an unwearied cor- 
respondence with the Western clergy. For special family history he 
has hot seldom consulted Winslow Jones Esq. Any one orking on

REGISTER OF EXETER COLLEGE. 

Tus CoUege was founded in 34 by Walter de Stapeldon, bishop 
of Exeter, under the name of Stapeldon Hall. Deeds of 314 and 
1315 mention the Rector and Scholars, i.e. Fellows, but no names 
occur until 38. The contractions Corn., Chapl., Der., Guer., Jer., 
Petr., Sar., Shi. denote the Cornish, Chaplain, Devon, Guernsey, Jersey, 
Petrean, Sature, and Shiers foundations ; small letters show that the 
attribution is doubtful.

SCHOLARS, EXHIBITIONERS, AND BIBLE CLERKS I 

Scholar originally meant Fellow. Scholars in the modern sense do 
hOt occur till a late period (Shadwell's t?eg. Orieleme, pref.). We find 
exhibitioners perhaps earlier. A bible clerk is mentioned in 14o3, 
529, and 62. 
Sir John Acland, besides eontributing to the New Hall, gave £ t 6 
a year to two scholars at the College, Izacke's Regi.,ter '/36 p. x  ; 
and William Jesse, fellow 1639, is ealled penstbnarius Aclandianus in 
1632. 
Robert Vilvaine, fellow, founded in 637 4 exhibitions of £32 each 
)early, to be paid through the Rector and Subrector ; 2 from the High 
School and 2 from the Free Grammar School at Exeter, to be held for 
7 years during residence without other preferment. 
On 2o June 877, in reply to the Visitor, the College did not oppose 
the Adand Exhibitions being ruade tenable at any University or other 
I,lace of higher education ; but, if the exhibitioner should eome to 
Oxford, required that he should enter at Exeter College. It took no 
action as to the Vilvaine Exhibitions. 
In 62.2 (State Papers 27 Sep.) Thomas Stevens' sister was to pay 
£33 ° for ber husband's legacies, viz. £ioo to maintain poor scholars 
at Exeter College, £  oo to the University Library, £  oo to S. Michael's, 
where his son la)' buried, £20 for a scaffold for scholars in that church, 
:ç.,  o to Dr. Prideaux. 
Samuel Hill in 634 gave £oo, fo relieve poor scholars and 
servitors, including at least 2 from Devon and 2 from Cornxvalt, by 
girls of 3 ° shillings a year; Gutch iii. o6. 
Robert Michell founded by will, 28 Mch 64i, an exhibition for 
which he gave the rent of 6 acres ealled Wild Arish in Withecombe 
Raleigh, 'the profits tobe divided at Michaeimas among such poor 
scholars of the College as be servitors and apply themselves to the 
study of divinity.'

24 Nov. 637 age t6, B.A. 3 July t64. He founded by will, dated 
t t Nov. x664, 'out of the iands xx'hich he himself had purchased,' an 
exhibition for 'some ingenious scholar whose father hath hot above 
£30 per annum in land or estate, to be chosen out of Lincolnshire and 
Notts, upon the election of the Master of Retford Hospital [now the 
Subdean of Lincoln] and the Archdeacon of Nottingham, the same 
scholar to be admitted and educated in Exêter College, Oxford'; it is 
for Lincoln and Notts alternately; the property is quite distinct from 
the property of Retford Hospital, see Reg. t 5 May 1793- It was long 
before the property was so applied. The first exhibitioner noticed is 
in t7o5 . The present rental is £75 ios., chiefly from 6 houses in 
a court at Retford, and a few acres of land in W. Retford parish. 
1Ieriel Symes of Barwick, Som., y. d. of Sir John Horner of Mclis, 
Som. b)" Ann Speke, b. 635, d. 717 (3Iisc. Gen. t882 iv. i63), 
widow of Thomas Symes and mothêr of John Symes (vho d. 6 July 
t687 age 20, and was buried in the south aisle of the College Chapcl), 
founded an exhibition for the maintenance of a poor scholar at Exeter 
College by deed dated 7 Nov. 17 xo; open to mêmbers of the College 
being of the kindred of John Symes, or, in default of such. to poor 
scholars born in Somerset or Dorset ; in default of such, to natives of 
those counties at an)" other College; in default of such, to an)" poor 
scholar of Exeter College ; the scholar must be examined touching his 
learning and abilities, and must intend to study divinity, and ma)" hold 
the scholarship for eight years, unless othevise provided for, but 

must reside without being 
except in case of sickness, 
cause of his absence ; each 

absent above forty days in an)" one year, 
and even then the Rector must approve the 
scholar is to have the sums accruing during 

a previous vacancy, but, if the scho|ar becomes a Fellow of any 
College, he receives half the sums accruing during his year of proba- 
tion, the other half going to the College Treasury. tut if the scholar 
at the end of rive years is hOt able to render any chapter of the Greek 
Testament into Latin and also any chapter in the Hcbrew Pentateuch 
(upon examination by the Bishop of tath and Wêlls, or some one 
appointed by him), the scholarship shall be void. The College may 
make leases of the lands for 2 t years, but it must be at the full value 
&c. Mêriel's own kin, the Horners, were included (see the Horner 
pedigree in Hutchins ii. 667); and, as her sister Ann married John 
Harington of Kelston near Bath, the Haringtons were admitted, 
though John Harington seems to have only had a daughter Ann 
(ho married Sir Robert Chaplyn) by Ann Horner, and the rest of

]XIeriel (who d. 3 ° ]XIch ISI 3 age 78), great granddaughter of Meriel 
Symes' brother Sir George Horner, married John Williams of 
Herringstone, and their granddaughter Elizabeth Williams married 
R. A. ]3urney, which admitted the ]3urneys. ]XIeriel Symes herself 
named the first scholar; the land she gave consisted of three 
undivided parts in ten of Norwood Park called Shortwood, a toile 
from Glastonbur)', containing by estimate 142 actes, together with 
the tithes thereof. The scholarship is now held for 5 years (since 
 875), and is divided into two. 
John Reynolds, 1 s. of John Reynolds (d. x692), and uncle of Sir 
Joshua Reynolds, b. 9 July t67, fellow of King's Camb., B.D. Oxford 
7 Oct. î8, Iaster of Exeter sch. tTt3-33, fellow of Eton I734, 
canon of Exeter t743, d. 27 June t758, his will is dated 27 Feb. 
t756, W. Antiq. iv. 24, v. 3. He founded 6 exhibitions, 3 from 
Eton, and 3 from Exeter School, nominated alternately by the Chapter 
and Chamber of Exeter, tenable till the holders were 24 : the words 
of his will are 'that are designed for Clergymen to complete their 
education at Exeter College, preferably to all others if they can be 
accommodated there.' 
The Rev. St. John Eliot founded 2 exhibitions of £3 ° each for 
candidates from Truro gr. sch.; the electors, after the death of his 
trustees, to be the Schoolmaster and the Vicars of Kenwyn, Gluias 
and Veryan. The money was in the 3 per cents. Candidates were 
to have been 3 )ears at Truro School and tobe members of Exeter 
College. The arrangements were settled by decree in Chancery 
t4 Ich t767, sec Allen's Liskeard 74-8, R.I.C.x. 423 . Coll. Corn. 
234, 388, 393. Latterly the money has been given in small sums 
to boys at the school or at parish schools with little beneficial result. 
William Gifford in 1827 founded 2 Gifford Exhibitions of £3 ° 
each, Reg. 182'/ p. tz, and 25 June 1832. By his vill he left for 
this purpose £2000 in the 3 per cents. The exhibitions were to be 
gin'en to youths educated at Ashburton gr. sch. or, in default of such, 
to )'ouths of the Count)" of Devon. On the evidence of Dr. Ireland 
Dean oI" Westminster, Gifford's friend and executor. Chancery by 
decree dated 8 Nov. I831 settled the preference given to mean 'born, 
or educated (in part or holly) in Devon.' There is no limitation of 
age or standing, under the degree of ]3.A. The exhibitions are tenable 
for four years, and dividends accumulated during vacancies are to be 
invested for the fund.

Thomas How of Balliol, R. of Htantspill, Som., who d. 5 Ich 
8 9, founded an exhibition at Balliol. On Balliol declining the gift, 
it was transferred to Exeter by decree of Chancery 4 lIch 83I. It 
was for sons of Clergy resident in Somerset and Devon, alternately, 
provided they were actually rnernbers of the College, and under 9, 
and was tenable till the holders were of standing for II.A., or were 
elected Fellows of the College, or ceased to be members of the College. 
The sum given was £-4oo in the new 3½ per cents. The exhibition 
was divided into two in 863. 
Joseph Loscombe Richards, Rector 1838, left by will £3.5o in 
3 per cent. bank annuities to round a divinity i,rize (Reg. 836 p. 46- 
48 his letter and extract from his will, and p. 197); and the reversion, 
after his sister's death, of some fields in Kidlington (Hist. of Kidlington 
z37) to round an exhibition for a poor scholar, already matriculated 
at the College. His friends subscribed £644 8s., which bought 
£7o7 8s. lld. in the funds, to round an exhibition for an)' poor
